It's been over a year since we had our last call....wait, no, it's been three weeks.
Since many of us are under stay-at-home or shelter-in-place orders, let's get together in our traditional socially distanced fashion for the April 2020 OpenCon Librarian Community call.
Does your library have a defined set of values? Firmly established "deal breakers" in license negotiations? Are you curious about how a librarian might go about drafting values-based criteria...and get them approved for implementation? Join us April 14th for a visit with Scarlet Galvan, Collection Strategist Librarian at Grand Valley State University, who's had just this kind of success.
This call brings together all librarians working with, or learning about, all things Open--and gives folks an opportunity to connect with each other to better their work and librarianship.
You can find all the proposed agendas and minutes from the Librarian community calls in one place, right here.

Community calls are always friendly, and we love new faces. The more you participate, the more you'll get out of it! No doubt there will be a lot of this too.
