New Report, "Collaboration Contexts: Framing Local, Group and Global Solutions"

 
This short report provides the scaffolding for the agenda of the upcoming "Yours, Mine, Ours: Leadership Through Collaboration" forum (20-21 September 2010 at the Smithsonian Institution) that will explore local, group and global collaboration contexts in greater depth.

In addition to sketching out the benefits and limitations inherent in each of these settings as a high-level guide to the trajectory of the event, the report serves as a resource in its own right for assessing collaborative activities.

All are invited to learn more about the benefits and challenges of collaboration within and across institutions by attending the "Leadership Through Collaboration" forum in person or hosting a local viewing party to watch a live stream of the event. The forum is hosted by the Smithsonian Institution; supported by the Institute of Museum and Library Services and the Gladys Krieble Delmas Foundation; and endorsed by the Joint SAA, ALA and AAM Committee on Archives, Libraries & Museums (CALM).
