OCULA Information Briefs

Information briefs are two-page backgrounders on issues relevant to Ontario’s college and university library staff. Each brief will address an issue in terms of who, what, when, where, why and how, focusing on the benefits and challenges as well as the implications for libraries in higher education. They will be written by your expert colleagues from around the province (and that could be you!).

If you would like to propose a topic for a brief or if you have any questions, please contact Jack Young, Councillor-at-Large. All briefs are published using the OCULA template.
