Collaborative Project to Improve Access to Scholarly Information Awarded $1M Mellon Grant

The sea of information available to scholars and researchers can seem impossibly vast. But, with the help of a new grant, Cornell University Library, in collaboration with the Harvard Library Innovation Lab and Stanford University Libraries, aims to make that sea easier to navigate.

The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation awarded a nearly $1 million, two-year grant to Cornell to support an investigation using Linked Data and the Semantic Web to improve discovery and access of scholarly information by the three libraries.

The SUL-Mobile Users Group (SUL-MUG) is a community of SUL users of mobile devices such as iPad, Xoom, Kindle, etc. If you use one of these devices for your work, whether for productivity, teaching, reference or to circulate, please join us! You’ll have the opportunity to meet with and learn from other SUL mobile device users. Our meetings are run in the unconference tradition – no set agenda – so attendees can bring up whatever question they wish, demonstrate a cool app they've found, whatever you want or need to talk about, and do this with other like-minded users.

We are changing our meeting dates! The SUL-MUG meetings are now the third Tuesday of every month starting April 16th so as to accommodate as many of our users as possible. We meet in the IC Classroom (Green Rm.166) and start at 10:30 am.

See you then!
