Final Report on LibORS Innovation Fund Grant

To:          Executive Committee

From:    Lisa Hinchliffe

Date:     February 8, 2017

 

Re:         Final Report on LibORS Innovation Fund Grant

Through funding from an Innovation Fund Grant, significant progress was made towards establishing the Library Occasional Reports Series (LibORS).[1] 

Specifically, all of the preparations to begin publication and marketing are complete, except for the provisioning of DOIs. In collaboration with the project’s advisory committee, LibORS project staff completed the following work ito operationalize the LibORS objectives:

Though the Innovation Fund Grant monies are expended, not all of the planned work is finished. As such, though this final report for the grant summaries the activities to date, the LibORS project has not come to an end but will continue through the efforts of Lisa Hinchliffe, project PI, and formal publication is expected to begin in summer 2017.
