OLIS Report
« on: June 15, 2021, 09:11:07 AM »
OLIS Portal


The OLIS is interested in how we can support community-building related to scholarly communications within SUNY libraries.
One solution we are exploring is offering services to help bring interested people together, by providing tools for communication channels, sharing content, and conducting (virtual) meet-ups.
We developed a brief survey to gauge interest in this type of initiative. The survey takes about 5 minutes to complete.
If interested in this initiative, please complete the survey by July 1, 2021:
Feel free to answer anonymously. Thanks in advance for your time and input!


SUNY was provided with funding from EBSCO for DEI initiatives. Supported by this funding, SUNY will be planning professional development related to DEI over the course of the next year, in partnership with the Empire State Library Network. The members of this advisory committee will help make decisions about professional development activities. Additionally, there may be opportunities for some limited additional group work related to DEI such as creating a repository or toolkit about DEI work happening in SUNY libraries. This advisory committee will help make decisions about any potential group work in DEI in SUNY libraries over the next year.
Deadline for Expressing interest is 6/18/2021
