Call for Proposals -- SkyRiver Users Group Meeting

Call for Proposals -- SkyRiver Users Group Meeting

The SkyRiver Users Group Steering Committee invites SkyRiver users to submit presentation proposals for the 2nd Annual SkyRiver Users Group (SRUG) meeting, to be held immediately after the IUG Conference on May 10, 2014 (Saturday) from 8:30 am to 12:30 PM at the Detroit Marriott, Renaissance Center.

Presentations of about 45 minutes, with a portion of that time set aside for Q&A, will be considered. Ideas for forums or panels to discuss a topic related to SkyRiver and cataloging are also welcome.

Topics of interest may include, but are not limited to, the following:

*         Using SkyRiver for RDA implementation
*         Tips and tricks for using SkyRiver
*         SkyRiver in a consortial environment
*         Cataloging workflow improvements
*         Academic library experience using SkyRiver
*         Public library experience using SkyRiver
*         Cataloging projects, practices, and innovations using SkyRiver
Please use the online form https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1W9V_qxdrNh8JjiU9KoWc_0aORxTmlyGhpPTnm07onoI/viewform  to submit proposals by March 24, 2014. Presenters will be notified of proposal acceptance by the end of March 2014. For any additional questions or inquiries, please email Regina Gong at gongr1@lcc.edu.

Lastly, for III libraries using SkyRiver, the registration for the SRUG meeting (concurrent with registration for IUG) is now open at http://innovativeusers.org/.  For non-III libraries, a link will be sent out at a later date for registration as soon as that website gets set up. Please stay tuned, because the SRUG Steering Committee hopes to see a good mix of III and non-III libraries using SkyRiver in the user group meeting.

We look forward to see you in the meeting!
