Outputs Now Available from Yours, Mine, Ours: Leadership Through Collaboration Forum

 
OCLC Research and an RLG Partnership planning committee held this two-day event on strategies for effective collaboration in Washington, D.C., 20-21 September 2010.

This event highlighted collaboration from a local institutional perspective as well as cross-institutional and network-level vantage points. Nearly 200 RLG Partners and representatives from other cultural heritage institutions attended in person and dozens more attended remotely by watching a live stream of the event.

Outputs from the event, including slides and video* of the keynote speakers, thematic panels and lightning rounds, are now available from the agenda on our Web site. In addition, a context report [pdf] is available that provides a high-level guide to the trajectory of the event and also serves a resource in its own right for assessing collaborative activities. A recap of the event is also available in a Hangingtogether blog post.

The event was 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).

*Please note that the temporary links to the streaming video will be replaced by permanent links to the video recordings in the near future. We will post a notification on our news page, on the event page and on our news and announcements RSS feed when this happens.
