We have an interesting issue that focuses on relationships—within the workplace, with our communities and with our users. Stereotypes, podcasts and new libraries are all featured along with some of our ongoing columns. Plus, Richard Reid (2019 OLA President) and Shelagh Paterson (OLA Executive Director) share the OLA priorities for 2019 in the annual Bird's eye podcast.
In this post April Fool’s Day release, we reflect on the role of satire in a post-truth world, and introduce a new issue of Inside OCULA with a new editing team.
As we produced the April Fool’s Day special issue this year, we talked a lot about “fake news”. Ryan Tucci has some thoughts and suggestions on how to approach this topic in April Fools and Fake News.
The April issue of Inside OCULA includes the new OCULA President, mentoring programs, the OCULA Spring Conference, lightning strikes presentations, and two award-winning projects.
We hope you enjoy this issue, and please do let us know what you think.
