“Hear ideas about how to lengthen your organization’s reach into various segments of the community and appeal to different groups of constituents… From small investments to lasting community relationships, learn about ways to open doors to non-traditional relationships between libraries, cultural heritage institutions, and community partners. Also, bring your own ideas and experiences to share. We will explore avenues of cooperation between our institutions and unexpected partners to bring more money and value to our organizations and increase our constituents’ return on investment.”
“Tired of all the focus on electronic resources when you’re still dealing every day with delivering those physical resources–like books? Then NISO’s May webinar on “It’s in the Mail: Improving the Physical Delivery of Library Resources” is for you.
Resource sharing of physical formats–whether books, DVDs, CDs, or audiocassettes–continues to play an important role in library service, as does moving those materials between libraries and from a library directly to a patron’s home or office. The issues around how to deliver library materials quickly, securely, and cost-effectively can be immense. So what are the best ways to provide physical delivery of library materials?
April 13th, from 10-11am PT, O’Reilly will be offering a free webcast on “subversive collaboration”. You can register for the webcast here. This webcast talks about the way in which modern technologies have changed work so that we are all “subversive” collaborators, working with others without (necessarily) formal support from our organizations. It looks interesting!

“Tough times call for tough choices, and one of those choices is how to get the most out of every resource at hand. One way to do this is through strategic and intentional partnerships and collaborations. But how do you form these partnerships so that the library, the partner, and, most important, the community all benefit?

The Potential of Partnerships: Dissolving Silos for a Successful IR Implementation
Presenter: Marilyn Billings

“This webinar will use the University of Massachusetts’ institutional repository as a case study to explore how the new digital repository service has affected the way librarians envision our place in the future of the academy, how the academy is changing its view of the library’s role, new tools and skills that we are developing to fulfill this service, and new partnerships that we have created and fostered to exploit this new vision. We hope to foster discussion and provide insights and opportunities for further exploration of how the role of libraries as publishers enables us to be key partners in the creation, dissemination, and archiving of academic scholarship.,,
Marilyn Billings is the Scholarly Communication & Special Initiatives
Librarian at the University of Massachusetts Amherst.”
