We envisioned this year’s July issue to be an inaugural attempt at creating a contributor-driven “unconference issue.” And while this month’s issue is a compact one, I think its contents speak to the spirit of an unconference—user-driven conversations and knowledge-sharing that span a wide range of topics, media and scope, engaged with at our own pace.
In this release, we’re back with an OLA featured member along with some info trends, John Pateman’s Open for all? and a new podcast from OLA’s president and executive director.
Fiona Inglis continues at the helm of Random Library Generator and this month she introduces Sharon Bailey from the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health in Toronto.
Finally, Shelagh Patterson (OLA executive director) and Leslie Weir (OLA president) join forces via the sound waves to give you their take on SuperConference and plans (including strategic) for 2017.
As always, let us know what you think of Open Shelf.
On behalf of the editorial team …
