Dear All,

In addition to the Fall Conference 2008 "Once & Future Catalog" program 
<http://www.olaweb.org/mc/page.do?sitePageId=64393>, there will also be 
two informal discussions on Thursday evening.

The first discussion is centered on ways academic librarians in Oregon 
and Washington can collaborate on undergraduate information literacy and 
IL  initiatives in the region.

The second discussion explores the possibility of creating a NW library 
research network. While demands for research data to inform decisions, 
improve practice, program assessment and evaluation have been 
increasing, adequate measures and instruments have lagged behind. The 
facilitators will briefly outline various models for cooperative 
research to provide background for further discussions. *

ACRL-OR and ACRL-WA members:  $110

produced a focus on information that is unaware of its history." --
