During the period of November 7-December 9, 2016, the OLAC and MOUG Boards surveyed current and past MOUG and OLAC members via MOUG-L and OLAC-L regarding 1) what you value in OLAC and MOUG, 2) your opinions about whether merging the two organizations is worth investigating, and 3) other collaborations that could take place.
Bruce Evans and Nara Newcomer will facilitate a discussion as part of the “Ask Everything” session at the MOUG Meeting in Orlando (Tuesday, February 21, 2017, 2-3:30 pm).
To help oil the gears, as it were, for that discussion, we would like to share the following three documents with you all.
- A four-page summary of the survey results. This survey also includes a summary of the discussion held at the OLAC membership meeting at ALA Midwinter.
- Spreadsheet with full survey results. To maintain privacy, free-text responses have been redacted and the ideas expressed summarized.
- Spreadsheet with additional charts not present in the four-page summary.
- Slides from Orlando discussion
The MOUG Board will also be discussing the survey at our Board meeting in Orlando. In addition to participating in the discussion at MOUG, we also welcome your feedback over e-mail in advance of the meeting. Please feel free to e-mail either Bruce Evans or Nara Newcomer directly.
