FACT2 Report (sorry for this being late)
« on: March 21, 2013, 09:03:49 PM »
March 21, 2013
I apologize for being late with my report. SUNYLA planning and what not …
1. CIT 2013 is at SUNYIT. This year’s keynote is Bryan Alexander from NITLE. A big theme this
year will be Open SUNY. The Provost David Lavallee will join us again and Chancellor Zimpher
should be there as well.
2. The SUNY Online Learning Summit was a great conference this year. Incredible speakers all
around. I would encourage librarians to consider attending this conference.
3. The 3Ts just wrapped up and was another great conference. Although attendance was low
feedback so far has been very positive.
4. The last round of IITGs are under review. I will announce the wards on the council and was as
the SUNYLA listserv.
5. With Open SUNY being discussed on the FACT2 Council I thought I would share that what
Open SUNY will look like in the end is going to depend on input from everyone in SUNY. I think
library’s in SUNY should make this a priority conversation on their campus and across our
organization. There is so much to think about including, but not limited to access to content
through federated ID. Are we prepared to serve 100K additional SUNY students with our current
staffing levels? Should we think systemness when we discuss supporting students in SUNY?
How do we address Open SUNY in our libraries?
Respectfully submitted,
