Here's another conference with a session on self-publishing:

More information about Meaningful Metrics<http://osl-lis.blogspot.com/2016/01/meaningful-metrics-21st-century.html> and Classroom Assessment Techniques for Librarians<http://osl-lis.blogspot.com/2016/01/classroom-assessment-techniques-for.html> is available on the LIS Collection blog<http://osl-lis.blogspot.com/>.


If you would like to request these or other materials from the Oregon State Library please use your library's established interlibrary loan process (e.g. OCLC or ALA request form).  Otherwise, send your full name, the name of your library, complete title information, shipping address, and a phone number to the document delivery department at library.request at state.or.us<mailto:library.request at state.or.us> or (fax) 503-588-7119. Items will be checked out to your library, not to you personally, for 4 weeks (print materials) or 2 weeks (videos). Materials will be delivered via mail or Orbis Cascade Alliance Courier, and you may return them the same way. Normally a single copy is purchased and is loaned on a first-come-first-served basis. You may be put on a hold list for several weeks. Thank you for your patience. Most library staff are able to use their library's interlibrary loan service to borrow professional development material. However, if you do not have access to these se
 rvices or are not currently affiliated with a library, please contact me<mailto:tamara.ottum at state.or.us> to discuss alternative options for borrowing the material.

Dear Library community, I am pleased to announce that the Oregon Digital Library Consortium has reached the over one million mark in circulating items in 2015. I believe this is the third year in a row that ODLC has achieved this milestone. In 2015, our circulation count for the year reached 1,434,197. Over the past year we saw a 13% increase in circulation. We are one of an elite group of consortiums with Overdrive across the United States to have reached this mark in 2015. Please join me in celebrating the accomplishment of getting this many digital ebooks and audiobooks in the hands of our library patrons.
Sincerely,

Esther Moberg
Oregon Digital Library Consortium Chair 2015-2016
