Registration & Call for Lightning Talks: Scholars Portal Days 2022
Currents of Change
Thursday, May 12 - Friday, May 13, 2022
The Scholars Portal Journals platform first launched as an OCUL service in 2002. In the intervening two decades, the landscapes of collections, scholarly publishing, library technology, and consortial collaboration have all evolved significantly. For this year’s Scholars Portal Days, we would like to explore the current environment, the currents of change that brought us to where we are today, and those that are pulling us ever forward. How do our current realities stack up against the visions, or the fears, of the past? What new and unexpected challenges or triumphs have arisen in our present? How can we prepare ourselves for the future when the pace of change is too rapid for us to predict what the landscape will look like in another twenty years?

Call for Lightning Talks
Do you work at an OCUL library? Do you have a project or initiative that responds to, or anticipates, the currents of change at your library? Do you have something to say about how you have used and/or recommended Scholars Portal services or projects differently over time? We encourage you to submit a proposal for a 5-7 minute lightning talk by filling out this submission form by 10AM on Monday, April 4.
