Community Owned Infrastructure: Partnerships and Collaboration
(Virtual Conference)

Wednesday, March 24, 12.00 - 4.00pm EDT (Canada/US)

Researchers and their organizations alike have come to rely on access to a
robust and open community-owned infrastructure. At this virtual conference,
we’ll hear from those who provide, fund, and use this infrastructure in our
community about what’s working, what isn’t, and how best to ensure its
long-term success. Confirmed speakers include: Laurie Arp and Megan Forbes,
both of LYRASIS; Helena Cousijn, DataCite; Bohyun Kim, University of Rhode
Island; Boaz Nadav-Manes, Lehigh University; Ann West, Internet2; and Ralph
Youngen, American Chemical Society.

Assessment Practices and Metrics for the 21st Century: A 2021 Participatory
Learning Experience
(Training Series)

Eight weekly sessions, April 1 - May 27 (times and days vary)

This training series will build on the success of previous series to
provide a more participatory and interactive experience of improving
assessment planning in libraries. Our goal is to create a community of
learning, with meaningful professional experiences and mentorships, sharing
experiences, and getting to know each other better and support each other.
As well as participating in the weekly one-hour facilitated sessions,
attendees will be expected to prepare reflections and content to share with
the larger group every week. Interactive exercises for improving assessment
practice will also be provided. Our Training Facilitator for this series
is, once again, Martha Kyrillidou of QualityMetrics LLC.
