CNI 2019 Spring Membership Meeting

Many thanks to CNI’s staff and leadership for a wonderful and engaging event. At this iteration of CNI, I took part in their series of Executive Roundtables, this one exploring how institutions are moving services and infrastructure to the cloud. At a Canadian institution, this is of particular interest given that most major cloud vendors […]

CNI 2018 Fall Membership Meeting

CNI was information dense as always. Below are the notes I recorded. Mistakes and leaps in logic are mine, not the speakers’. It has been clear for a number of years that CNI is growing in popularity; at the opening session Cliff Lynch noted about a half dozen new members who have joined just since […]

Access 2018 in Hamilton

As always, Access was a delight to attend. I am so grateful to my former colleagues and still friends at McMaster, who carried on with the planning after I put my hand up at last year’s wonderful event in Saskatoon and volunteered to bring it to Hamilton, only to subsequently depart for the University of […]

A Primer on Library Titles

  For those of us working in academic libraries, the myriad roles in our organizations are generally fairly clear, but for the rest of our institution it seems that our internal structures and designations remain unclear. What follows is an attempt to provide some clarity about the roles in libraries. It might help to offer […]

CNI Fall 2017 Membership Meeting notes

CNI was informative and enriching as always. I had the opportunity this time around to participate in the executive roundtable on moving data to the cloud and enjoyed that environment as always. At this event, I chose to take most of my notes using a pen and paper, after reading some thoughts on this from […]

@Risk North in Ottawa

@Risk North was a further meeting of an initiative that the Center for Research Libraries kicked off a while back to address issues related to print preservation. I attended after reading the program and realizing that we can no longer talk about print preservation without including digital preservation and the myriad points of intersection in […]

Access 2017 Saskatoon

After a long hiatus while on research leave, I’m back out on the road getting in touch with the profession and taking notes. Access is both a favourite and an excellent reentry path given its warm and friendly environment. Within about an hour of being at Access, I had already worked up two proposals to […]

Digital Humanities 2016 Kraków

One interesting quirk of the DH conference is that so many talks are presented with a long list of collaborators in the program. It’s great to see collaborative work becoming more the norm. This isn’t new, but I seem to note an increase in this year over year. I’ve chosen just to list the person(s) […]

Full circle

I generally call this my ‘personal’ professional blog, but this post is purely personal. Our professional demeanor can be a bit of a mask of inscrutability. Sometimes it’s good to let it slip. Back in fall 1992, I was staying with a good friend in Berlin. The summer previous I had worked as a cook […]

Open Repositories 2016

After hearing great things about it for years and trying to fit it into the work calendar, I made it to Open Repositories, held this year in Dublin, Ireland. Part of the reason it was important this year is that I’m trying to get the word out about the Ontario Library Research Cloud, both to […]
