Interested in doing research on libraries or librarianship and not sure how to start? Have you started, but need some collegial support and encouragement to continue? Just want to talk to other librarians who also are interested in this topic? Consider participating in the Orbis Cascade Alliance Research Interest Group. Your library does not have to be part of the Orbis Cascade Alliance in order for you to participate.
The Orbis Cascade Alliance Research Interest Group (A-RIG, http://www.orbiscascade.org/index/research-interest-group) will hold its next meeting (Friday, September 21, 2012, 10 a.m.-12 noon) online using the GoTo Meeting software and include an in-person component in the Autzen classroom at Oregon State University’s Valley Library in Corvallis, Oregon. Log in online (instructions below) or come to the OSU Library if you want to be with other A-RIGers or chat with colleagues face to face before or after the online meeting.
A-RIG meetings are specifically synchronized for the morning of ACRL-OR meeting days to allow for greater participation from interested parties and to facilitate coordination between groups.
Many thanks to OLA for providing online meeting support and to Anne-Marie Deitering and her colleagues at OSU Valley Library for providing the in-person space.
