ARK/IIIF, Quickstart guide, new ARK format transition
jk: low turnout today – probably should have reminded people that the US changed clocks two weeks earlier than Europe
|Calls for papers, submission deadlines, upcoming meetings: Calendar of events|
|Any news items we should blog about?|
|ARK & IIIF blog post – call for reviewers|
jk: exciting topic and great embedded videos, but dense
Quickstart guide ready to go out?
all: changes are ok; interim best top level menu label (short, accurate) is "GET STARTED"
all: fine to point to this page from the NAAN response letter
ACTION: jk will make these changes
ARK spec transition planning
|mg: when would it take effect, how much lead time is needed?|
mg: if it is permanently backward compatible, does that disincentive people from changing?
jk: who can craft the transition plan?
mg: happy to be part of a group that does that, but don't have time to lead it or strategize
jk: who else should be part of the planning? Bnf, Smithsonian, Internet Archive, Portico, Nat'l Library of Luxembourg
New NAAN form asks more questions
-- ask also what software platform they're planning to use? (this would help prioritize our documentation and outreach)
mg: makes sense; in addition to some common platforms, make sure to have an "I don't know" choice
