An un-conference is more democratic and attendee powered than a typical conference. The focus is less on the sage-on-the-stage and more on discussions and informal sharing of ideas. All attendees propose discussion topics they are willing to facilitate and/or lightning talks that they are willing to give then those topics are voted on by the attendees closer to the meeting date. See the LUAU website for additional details.
- Propose a topic
- Indicate if you will be willing to lead an activity or a talk
- Indicate if you are willing to co-present
The Orbis Cascade Alliance is a consortium of 37 academic libraries in Oregon, Washington, and Idaho, serving faculty and the equivalent of more than 258,000 full-time students. Alliance member libraries work together to provide services to students and faculty, share information resources and expertise, develop library staff, and help members allocate financial and human resources to serve the unique needs of each member. The Alliance supports a number of services that promote this vision, including Summit, a system that allows students, faculty, and staff to easily search and request library materials owned by member libraries; courier service providing delivery of library materials in Oregon, Washington, and Idaho; the Northwest Digital Archives, offering enhanced access to primary sources in the Northwest US; an Alliance distributed print repository; consortium-wide participation in Western Regional Storage Trust (WEST); cooperative purchasing of databases and e-journals; and a demand-driven shared e-book program.
