What is the Library Occasional Reports Series?

The Library Occasional Report Series was established in Spring 2015. The creator of the series, Lisa Hinchliffe, received a University Library Innovation Fund to investigate how to most effectively establish the series and make it a sustainable project for the library.

The series currently publishes University Library committee and technical reports on a variety of subjects, including discovery, scholarly communication, reference service, instruction, and assessment. While many of the reports are retrospective reports that were published by past library committees, the Occasional Report Series is also seeking new reports that any library committee, department, or working group would like to share.
