Friday 10th April (Good Friday)? - we will continue to have the meeting on this day despite
Facilitator: Richard Green
Note taker: Esmé Cowles
Lisa McAulay from UCLA will join us to talk about the new UCLA Digital Collections site and to explain how it fits into their coming new repository and digital publishing structure.
Richard was unable to get in touch with Lisa this week, we will hope to get this perhaps in the next meeting.
The face-to-face Partner Meeting scheduled for 27-28 April in Atlanta is cancelled due to the COVID-19 situation. Arrangements are being made to replace it with one or two on-line sessions in the same time blocks. Should this be a single four-hour (ish) call or two hours on each of the two days? See draft (but unordered) agenda here.
Steering suggested a compressed agenda, so they are looking to do a compressed partner meeting.
Likely based on this agenda will be about 3.5 hour agenda so perhaps a morning session
Discussion on this: should it be 1- 4 hour meeting or 2- 2 hour meetings
FYI: Open Repositories 2020 postponed for one year - now 5/31 -6/3/2021 in Stellenbosch
There may be a virtual set up for sessions that are more time sensitive, that has not been determined at this point.
This will likely be two half days, a bit of a later morning start (by Central Time)
