·       Member Reports: Institutional news and updates

          · Michelle will provide a general update of ODU Library followed by a brief follow-up                      from 3 of her full-time staff members on specific initiatives of                                                      interest (Jim – Archives, Tim – OER, and Christina – online ref support) 

· Following Michelle's lead, we will go around the room and invite our other member institutions to each provide a brief (3-5 minute) update on their latest news

· As lunch will available be on-site, we can probably afford to be somewhat flexible with our time on this end​
