OCLC and LIBER announce new open scholarship workshop series

OCLC and LIBER partner to support developing strategic relationships across universities to advance open scholarship

OCLC and LIBER announced today the launch of a virtual workshop series, Building strategic relationships to advance open scholarship at your institution, to focus on how librarians can develop strategic relationships across their universities to advance open scholarship.

The programming of the workshop is based upon the OCLC Research Report, Social Interoperability in Research Support: Cross-Campus Partnerships and the University Research Enterprise. The workshop series is specifically targeted at mid-level library professionals and practitioners. Each of the three workshop sessions will include a combination of presentations and small group discussion activities, facilitated by the authors of the Social Interoperability report and hosted by LIBER.

This workshop series is a pilot effort exclusively for OCLC Research Library Partnership affiliates and LIBER members and numbers are strictly limited. The organizations will be working together to assess the pilot and explore if this training exercise can be scaled to support more librarians.
