Welcome new members
|Emilio and Taphros are new to the Marketing Interest Group and participated in today's call. Emilio spoke about how we should market and promote What is DSpace and especially the strange and unique ways people are using DSpace. Susana Susanna talked about broadening our scope and market to businesses. FACT: Italy has a law that if a business has been active 40+ years that they must have a digital archive. INTERESTING!|
Twitter. The DSpace twitter account hasn't had a lot of tweets thus not much growth. We are working on a Google Form for the community to use to provide content. The Marketing group will then tweet.
Other updates needed: the webpage, Wikipedia, new videos--what is DSpace, features and general marketing brochures/marketing pieces are needed.
New members review and contribute to DSpace Comm Plan
