This past week, more than 60 librarians from universities across the Pacific descended upon the UC Berkeley campus, converging for a two-day deep dive into the experiments and achievements of fellow librarians working toward a more open, connected world.
The Pacific Rim Research Libraries Alliance, or, is a group of libraries that share important resources and ideas in hopes of improving the state of scholarly research around the world. The alliance meets annually to exchange stories about various technologies and programs — and the strides and bumps along the way.
At the conference, librarians discussed a range of programs related to open access and technological innovation — from the Tohoku University Library’s digitization of records about the devastating 2011 earthquake in Japan, to a new mobile app used by Korea University’s library to improve the experience of library users.
