What’s new in Open Shelf: October 2018

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.
