Blog from December, 2014

It’s been a busy year for the OLRC team. As we wind down for the break, we wanted to share a quick update on what’s been happening, as well as what’s in store for 2015. 

This fall, remote node locations were selected, and Scholars Portal systems staff travelled to assist with the installation of the storage racks. In early 2015, two more installations will take place, giving us a total of five nodes distributed widely across Ontario.

Also this fall, we congratulated Steve Marks as he went on parental leave, and welcomed Dale Askey from McMaster University as the new chair of the OLRC steering committee.

Earlier this month, Dale gave a short talk on the progress of the OLRC at Scholars Portal Day. You can view his slides, which outline the initial drive to build the OLRC, as well as what's ahead here
