FACT2 Report
« on: June 13, 2011, 03:25:37 PM »
CIT 2011 was held at SUNY Oneonta May 25-27. The keynote was Joan Getman from USC and both Provost David Lavallee and Chancellor Nancy Zimpher came in person to speak with us. At the conference the three task groups, Learning Environments, Teaching and Learning and e-Publishing gave their yearly reports. Both the Learning Environments and Teaching and Learning task groups made significant progress this year. The e-Publishing group has been asked to speak to the NYS Legislature about the future of the textbook in SUNY.

FACT2 will be holding its summer strategic meeting in Albany at the end of the month (June) in Albany. There will be a host of new opportunities to get involved with FACT2 because the provost has pinpointed a few topics we need to look closely at. One of the them could be copyright & fair use. I will send information when it is available, but I think SUNY librarians should consider becoming involved in my of these initiatives.
