MOUG’s 40th Anniversary -- Share Your Stories!

The Music OCLC Users Group (MOUG) is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year, and it is soliciting memory content in various media (oral histories on video, photos, textual recollections, etc.) from current/former members as well as other interested parties who have engaged in MOUG’s products and services. You can submit your stories in one or more of the following ways:

  1. Mark Scharff (Washington University in St. Louis) is coordinating oral history interviews. If you wish to be interviewed and have a story to tell, please reach out to Mark.
  2. Michelle Hahn (Indiana University and MOUG Social Media Coordinator) has set up a web form where you can submit your stories in written form or photos/videos from MOUG events. Multiple submissions are welcome too.
  3. If you prefer to reach out on social media, post your thoughts or upload photo/videos @MOUG on Facebook, @MusicOCLC on Twitter, Instagram and YouTube. Use the hashtags #MOUGat40 (MOUG memories) or #MOUG4Me (what MOUG means to you), or both.

Submission deadline is November 1.
