During this discussion, CNI Executive Director Clifford Lynch reported on Internet2 and the NDIIPP storage systems symposium. Cliff also responded to participants’ questions about the Bamboo Project, the trend for university libraries and university presses to work together, and the open access movement.
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. In this session, discussion topics included the Google Book proposed settlement, DataNet, and library responses to the financial crisis, among other things.
