August Updates

Open Library Community Webinar
We’re excited to announce that the GOKb quarterly user group calls will now be part of the ongoing Open Library Community Webinar Series. The first was held on August 10, at 11 AM EDT.

You can view the recording on the Open Library Enviornment website: GOKb Update Forum: Data Enhancement Strategies and New Services

Website Launch
Now you can access all GOKb information and the web application directly from www.gokb.org. We have a new look, updated content, and simplified navigation. We’ll also be adding some new features soon, including a direct link to a packages export page.

GOKb eBooks Decision Support & Availability Tracking Webinar
Based on the pilot project with libraries in the UK, there are a number of new use cases and enhanced developments that could represent valuable next steps, so we’re keen to gain feedback from the widest possible practitioner community, including views on relevance in US academic libraries.
Registration TBD: Early September 2016
