Welcome


OCULA Spring Conference 2015: Crossing Thresholds 
Friday, April 24, 2015 
Hosted at the Inn on the Twenty, Jordan Ontario 
From multiple directions, academic libraries and library professionals help our communities cross thresholds into unfamiliar territories. These thresholds are broad in scope and signal important changes on the horizon. The threshold in librarianship could be open access scholarship, new information literacy standards, digital citizenship, online privacy, e-resources, copyright, and more! Join us for a day of Crossing Thresholds in academic libraries, an opportunity to explore and share our experiences.

Presenters Bios 
This year's conference will feature a very special guest: Dr. Karen Louise Smith.
