In 2013, sponsored by the William Howard Doane Library, we inaugurated The Carolyn Craig and Dr. Carl M. Franklin Lecture Series. This lecture series features librarians, artists, writers and public intellectuals dealing with issues related to the field of library and information science.

Lunch*Learn*Library

In 2016, I developed the Lunch* Learn*Library* Lecture Series in the J. Robert Oppenheimer Study Center, Los Alamos National Laboratory. This informal video series features the best presentations & keynotes from library conferences, industry, and scholarly societies.

Horizons Series

In 2018, in collaboration with the Department of Learning & Applied Innovation, we developed the Horizons Colloquium Series. This colloquium series features a diverse mix of librarians, instructional designers, inventors, scholars, and innovators exploring the disciplinary boundaries in teaching, learning, and scholarly communication.

Open and Equitable Scholarship in the Liberal Arts Lecture Series

Oberlin Group members share a belief that scholarship and data should be universally accessible and equally available to scholars and readers worldwide. As leaders we are committed to working towards this goal through a range of actions, in order to make resources as open as possible and facilitate scholarship, teaching and learning both within and outside of our group. Communicate, as a group or individually, commitments or statements in support of projects that advance open access, open data, open educational resources, and open publishing.  Contribute our unique liberal arts academic library perspective as a group or individually to national organizations or projects that are working towards these goals.  Provide a forum for our members to discuss and initiate new projects in support of openness, recognizing that not all of our members may be able to provide financial support to such projects. Initiate and host discussions for our member libraries so that we can share institution-specific ways that we are individually supporting universal access to scholarship.
