The team at Open Shelf has returned after our end-of-summer break reinvigorated. We enjoyed our “time off,” but are just as excited to meet the challenges and joys of the autumnal season.
This issue is multi-lingual (in English and en français), multi-modal (text and audio) and invitational.
Here’s what you’ll find in Open Shelf, in the order that the content appears:
- As Agnieszka Gorgon and Caleb Domsy share in The Research Hub: A remote collaboration story, working at a distance can be an intense, challenging but ultimately satisfying experience.
- Teens will use their public library. As Laura Martin shares in Teen Lunch Bunch, young people in Niagara Falls are thriving in a program that feeds them—body and soul.
- Writing in both English and French, Amanda Wakaruk and Mélanie Brunet take issue with the relevance of Crown copyright in Canada’s Crown Copyright/Le droit d’auteur de la Couronne au Canada.
- Readers’ Advisory can happen in face-to-face and virtual environments. According to Kristin Caschera, the 2018 RA for a Day event provided participants with a treasure trove of tips for communicating “best bets” online.
- Finally, OLA members have the opportunity to answer our call (or invite for applications): We’re Seeking digital editors.
As always, we invite your comments, feedback and thoughts. Hope you enjoy the show.
