Announcing the BC ELN Provincial Digital Library Task Group!

Many thanks to all those who expressed interest in standing on the BC ELN Provincial Digital Library (PDL) Task Group. The BC ELN Steering Committee has confirmed 8 task group members who represent a diversity of post-secondary institutions from across the province.

It is with great pleasure that I announce the members of the BC ELN Provincial Digital Library Task Group:

•    Emily Carr University of Art + Design – James Rout
•    Kwantlen Polytechnic University – Todd Mundle
•    Simon Fraser University – Mark Jordan
•    Thompson Rivers University – Penny Haggarty
•    University of British Columbia – Allan Bell
•    University of Victoria – Lisa Goddard
•    Vancouver Community College – Shirley Lew
•    Vancouver Island University – Tim Atkinson (Chair)

Emerging out of the BC government’s Core Review, the proposed Provincial Digital Library will expand public access to academic research and openly licensed library resources across academic, school, and public libraries. Reporting to the BC ELN Steering Committee, the BC ELN PDL Task Group will explore how the post-secondary sector can contribute to the vision of a provincial digital library. The task group will begin work in January.
