OCUL undertakes special projects from time to time to support and further its Strategic Goals.
Under the Collaborative Futures project, OCUL has undertaken the development of a shared vision of the future of library management systems in Ontario’s academic libraries - a vision that articulates new possibilities and builds on a decade-long history of collaboration and cooperation. This vision involves radical collaboration to help OCUL libraries face the challenges of today - the transformation of scholarly communication and higher education, rapid developments in information technology, and declining or limited resources.
ROAM, or the Report on Accessible Media is a research study on accessible media delivery at Ontario universities. Commissioned by OCUL, the study will identify a range of service options available to Ontario’s university libraries to ensure fair and equitable access to video collections held at university libraries across the province.
