Scholars Portal Roadshow 2020


This year, we're putting Scholars Portal Day on hold, packing the tour bus and bringing the conversation to you!


The Scholars Portal Roadshow gives OCUL and the SP team the opportunity to hear from staff at member institutions, build relationships, and get feedback. We hope this event will:

  • Reach a larger or different audience than usual Scholars Portal Day attendees
  • Help build and strengthen relationships between the Scholars Portal team and staff at OCUL institutions
  • Reduce the burden of travel for librarians and staff at OCUL institutions

We want to hear your feedback on our current directions and use it to help inform future strategic decisions. By coming to you, we hope to start a conversation, facilitated by a smaller, more intimate, and more engaging environment than SP Day can provide.

Who should attend?

Any and all interested librarians and library staff members at OCUL member institutions.

Your library is also welcome to invite faculty, senior administration, or IT representatives to showcase the kinds of collaborations the library is involved in.
