A Letter from our Member Services Manager, October 2014

Dear myMETRO Members,

Please join me on Wednesday, November 5 to hear presentations from two of the 2014 myMETRO Researchers-in-Residence. They will share the findings of their diligent research at the myMETRO SIG meeting at 5:30 pm at METRO. Register here

Tom.jpg Following the presentations, I’ll speak briefly about some changes we’ve made for the 2015 myMETRO Researchers Project, such as:

  • myMETRO members will have the choice to propose a team-based project or a self-guided project
  • members can choose from the following research topics:  Privacy, Collections, Community, and Preservation
  • project proposals that are selected for the project will be promoted to members. Research teams for those who'd like to find one will form at the Project Kick-Off Meeting in January.

We're thrilled at the prospect of launching the fourth cycle of myMETRO Researchers. We hope that by fostering a community of researchers, we can share insight into the profession with our colleagues everywhere. Previous projects have been seen at poster sessions at ALA Annual, presented at ARLIS/NA, and written up on the American Libraries blog.

Please stay tuned for an announcement early next week. We hope you'll consider joining the project. 

With best regards,

Tom Nielsen
Member Services Manager
