OLE Workshop - Indianapolis, IN

April 22, 200910:00 am to 3:00 pm

Wednesday, April 22, 2009 10:00am - 3:00pm

The Open Library Environment Project invites you to a 1 day workshop at the IUPUI University Libraries in Indianapolis, IN sponsored by the Indiana University System Libraries, Purdue University Libraries, and the University of Notre Dame Hesburgh Libraries. The purpose of this workshop is to provide a forum for representatives of Indiana and Midwest regional academic and research libraries and related institutions to discuss and provide feedback on the current state of the OLE Project Planning Document. The OLE Project will provide a fully vetted planning document for a community sourced information management system to the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation by June 2009 and this workshop intends to solicit feedback from peer libraries in the Indiana region on this plan and to seek institutions who are interested in becoming part of a build out component of the OLE information management environment.

Participation is open to any members of the research library community who work with current Integrated Library Systems or other workflow management systems for electronic resources management either on a day to day basis or from a higher level. OLE will be developed as an open source library environment that meets the needs of research libraries. While care will be taken to design an open and flexible system that is useful for other types of libraries, such as public libraries, the focus of the project in this early stage is on research libraries.

Due to space limitations, registration is limited to 40 participants. There is no cost for attendance other than your travel related expenses. Participants will be notified with further details.

Registration is now closed

  1. In your annoucement for the OLE Workshop to be held in Indianapolis in April, you refer to the OLE Project Planning Document. Is there a draft of this document? If so, where may I obtain a copy?

  2. I would like to second Scott’s request. I think we would get the most out of the workshop if participants would be able to review the draft prior to the meeting, which also may help us determine who we may want to have attend from our institutions. Thanks much!

  3. The OLE Project members are meeting in Kansas this week to work on this document. It is the intention of the group to post portions of this draft document by the end of next week, and we’ll certainly know more when this working group closes out tomorrow.
