Second Libraries faculty and staff stakeholder meeting added June 6

Submitted by Lisa Patton-Glinski:  A second date and time has been identified for Ologie, the marketing firm, to facilitate a stakeholder session with University Libraries faculty and staff.  The additional offering is June 6 from 1:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. in room 122 at the Libraries Tech Center.  We hope that you will be able to join one of the two interactive discussion session.  

We need your help—and a little of your time–so University Libraries can better support Ohio State faculty, staff, students, and stakeholders.

Complimentary to our current strategic planning process efforts, University Libraries has partnered with Ologie–a Columbus based higher education branding and marketing firm–to collaborate with us on the development of  a comprehensive strategy and messaging framework to ensure we engage our diverse audiences through clear, consistent, and compelling messaging.  We need your input to make this a success.

Ologie will hold informal conversations with key stakeholders like you to better understand existing perceptions of University Libraries, existing or evolving services and offerings, and stakeholder needs and expectations. Your insights and perspectives are very important to us, and your participation in a conversation with Ologie would be greatly appreciated. The sessions will be conversational in nature; there is nothing you need to prepare beforehand.

The meeting offerings are listed below.  Sessions should last approximately 1 hour. Again, we would be grateful if you could attend one of the sessions.  If you are a supervisor, please also encourage your team members to participate.

  • Thursday, May 25 from 2:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. in Thompson Library, Room 165

or

  • Tuesday June 6 from 1:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. in Libraries Tech Center room 122

Strategic Planning Discussions May 9 & 10

From Damon Jaggars:   We are looking forward to the Strategic Planning discussions, scheduled for next week:

  • May 9, 9-10:30 a.m., 165 Thompson Library
  • May 10, 2-3:30 p.m., 122 Library Tech Center

The focus of these sessions will shift from data gathering to building a common understanding of what we’ve defined as our future vision, mission, values, and strategic directions. If you aren’t sure what is meant by a word or statement, come and ask! It is crucial that we all move forward with a clear, common understanding of our intended emphases and focus areas, and this is your opportunity to get your questions answered by me and members of the Strategic Planning Group. 

We’ve posted the latest versions of the vision, mission, values and strategic directions documents for your review before the meetings at: https://osu.app.box.com/files/0/f/26005130364/Strategic_Planning_Feedback_Sessions_-_May_2017

We hope to see you all next week!

Lecture in Musicology, April 3

Maria Mendonça, Music and Anthropology at Kenyon College, presents

“Gamelan Performance in Britain: Encounters and Imaginaries”

Monday, April 3, 2017 – 4 to 5:30 pm
18th Avenue Library, 175 W. 18th, Room 205

The Indonesian gamelan – a predominantly bronze percussion ensemble comprising gongs, metallophones and other instruments – has had a long entanglement with the discipline of ethnomusicology, from its foundational moments to the present. But ethnomusicology is only one of several networks of circulation – including colonial administration, cultural diplomacy, educational ideology and prison rehabilitation – that have facilitated the movement and reinterpretation of the ensemble and its music outside of Indonesia. In this lecture, Maria Mendonça explores the ways in which the ensemble and its music has been re-imagined and localized in Britain, drawing on her recent ethnographic film project Gamelan Encounters (2016).

Lectures in Musicology are co-sponsored by the OSU School of Music and University Libraries.

Preview choreography from Opera Columbus production of Carmen March 30 at Thompson Library

The Ohio State University Libraries and BalletMet 2 will be partnering to share a performance experience for Thompson Library visitors on Thursday, March 30, at 1 p.m., in the east atrium, with a preview of choreography from the Opera Columbus production of Carmen.  The choreography by OSU Department of Dance faculty member Susan Petry, whose earlier work is documented in the Thompson Library Special Collections, attempts to create the sense of grit, determination, and passion that surrounds the story of Carmen. 

The collaborators are pleased to bring Carmen to life in the library, highlighting not only the work of OSU faculty Petry and graduate student and Associate Director of BalletMet Ambre Emory-Maier, but also the university’s collaboration through the Arts Initiative with BalletMet, Opera Columbus, and the Columbus Symphony. 

For further information, contact Nena Couch (couch.1@osu.edu), 614-292-9606.
