Getting involved in Project ReShare

December’s Project ReShare community meeting has been opened up to members of the public.

The Libraries team at K-Int has been involved in Project ReShare, the initiative to build an open source resource-sharing Interlibrary Loan platform, since its inception in 2018. Progress has been rapid, with August 2020 seeing the release of ReShare Returnables, the project’s first production software.

If you are curious to know more about how Project ReShare could be of value to your institution or consortia, or wish to know how to become involved, you can sign up for a place at the next community meeting to be held on December 14th at 4:00-5:30pm (GMT).

Attendance is limited to the first 300 registrants. For those who don’t make it on the day, a recording of the meeting will be shared on the project website.

Kelly Farrell (Triangle Research Libraries Network) will cover:

  • How institutions and consortia can join as members of Project ReShare
  • How individuals can get involved
  • Project governance and the new elections and nominations structure for the Steering Committee.

Gretchen Gueguen (PALCI) will share the consortium’s experiences using ReShare Returnables in a recent pilot. She will also report on collaborative work to integrate with other systems and to author documentation.

Kristen Wilson (Index Data) will demonstrate the latest ReShare Returnables release, with a focus on new functionality, and outline the roadmap for the Project in 2021.

Register for your place at the community forum.
