As part of an ongoing effort to explore additional ways to connect with our members, CNI has launched a program we are calling CNI Conversations, a series of sessions in which participants from member institutions take part in discussions on current topics with CNI Director Clifford Lynch and others. The first event, which was done in audio-conference format, took place on September 15, 2009 and the recorded archive of that session is now available online at https://www.cni.org/cni_conversations/. In this session, discussion topics included the Google Book proposed settlement, DataNet, and library responses to the financial crisis, among other things.
Real-time participation in upcoming CNI Conversations events requires pre-registration. Registration is open only to those at member institutions. Dates for upcoming CNI Conversations were recently sent to the CNI representatives at our member institutions; if you are interested in participating in a future session of CNI Conversations, please contact one of your organization’s CNI representative. We plan to continue to make audio or other records of these sessions generally available after the event.
For questions or comments related to CNI Conversations, please contact CNI Associate Executive Director Joan Lippincott at firstname.lastname@example.org.
