Last month, the ACRL-Oregon board decided on an exciting new blog liaison model for our website. When our new website and blog began a few years ago, the board began a blog liaison model with volunteer correspondents from academic libraries around the state contributing news from their respective libraries. You can read more about that here and here. A huge thank you to all the volunteer correspondents throughout the years!
With this new model, ACRL-Oregon board members have “adopted” academic libraries around the state, as you can see here on our newly updated blog liaison list. Each board member will then contribute content, interviews, and/or news on the blog throughout the year, for the benefit of ACRL-Oregon members.
We have also had the opportunity to expand the list of academic library liaisons. In the previous model, there were a little over 30 blog liaisons and libraries listed; there are now almost 60 libraries (!) currently listed, as taken from the directory of Oregon academic libraries from the Oregon State Library website.
Look for the first post published under this new blog liaison model, which will be coming your way soon! 🙂
Of course, if anyone would like to share news or happenings from your library or region, feel free to contact the ACRL-Oregon board directly — check out our Board Members page for contact info — so we can share with everyone!
