The grants will allow winning libraries to reduce their utilities expenses by installing a solar array at their institution. After seeing the benefits on its own campus, EBSCO introduced the EBSCO Solar grant program so libraries interested in adding their own solar arrays can do so. Since 2016, EBSCO Solar has given libraries nearly a million dollars in grant money.

OhioLINK and Ithaka S+R articulate needs that can guide future investments

Thu, 2020-01-23 18:41
(January 23, 2020). OhioLINK, Ohio's academic library consortium, collaborated with Ithaka S+R to put the library and its users at the center of an “envisioning” process to explore what tech-enabled and integrated services might be relevant to academic libraries. The effort was driven by library deans and directors concerns that strategic directions and technologies available to libraries--both at the consortial level, and on their campuses--were too narrowly scoped to meet emerging needs in a higher education context. The resulting white paper, It's Not What Libraries Hold; It's Who Libraries Serve--Seeking a User-Centered Future for Academic Libraries, is intended to generate constructive discussion among libraries and providers and accelerate innovation.
