Kuali OLE FC/TC Meetings in Chicago

This week am in Chicago at the new Big10 Center where we are having our fall Kuali OLE FC and TC meetings. We are happy to have this here since we have IU, Maryland, and Chicago as CIC Members of Kuali OLE. This am we got to hear from both the University of Chicago and Lehigh University about their recent implementations of Kuali OLE. We are so happy to share this news with all of our library colleagues and we hope to see more implementations in the near future.
To read more on the Lehigh University implementation see their news release – The Chicago news release is coming soon…

ALI Board Meeting

Today I am in Indianapolis for the Academic Libraries of Indiana (ALI) Board Meeting. I am here representing IU for our Interim Dean Carolyn Walters. I am also here to present an overview of the OLE Project Final Report. So far, the meeting is going well and it is always surprising how much academic libraries have in common no matter what size or where they are located.

I really hope my friend Dan Bowell will consider how PALNI can become a part of the OLE Build Project.
