[Libs-Or] Save the Date: 2017 Northwest IR User Group Meeting

You're invited to the 2nd annual Northwest IR User Group Meeting,  a one-day conference dedicated to sharing ideas, innovations, and best practices:

Friday, July 21, 2017
Millar Library
Portland State University
Portland, OR

A few logistics:
*While we expect participants to come primarily from British Columbia, Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, and California, anyone is welcome!
*As always, this is not a platform-specific meeting; if you are using, or exploring, ContentDM, DSpace, Eprints, Fedora, Digital Commons, Hydra, Greenstone, or any other repository platform, please consider attending. The meeting will be focused not on specific technical hacks (though there likely will be some of that) but rather on addressing the issues common to repository management, regardless of platform.

*This year's event will include panel presentations, lightning talks, and something new that we're calling table talks. This will be an opportunity for people who are experts on a particular topic (policies/MOUs, getting started with an IR, open textbooks/OERs, copyright, recruiting content, etc.) to share what they know. Participants can move from table to table as desired to ask questions, spend time working collaboratively on any projects related to the table's topic, or just listen.
*Registration will be free.
Watch for emails later this spring with more information, including a call for proposals, and registration details.
If you have questions, or would like to join our regional list (pnw-ir at googlegroups.com), please contact either me or my fellow organizers:
