MEETINGS ALL DAY - ?_?

Meetings all day. Will everything go better than expected, or will I rage?

Morning:

email - nope, I'm in meetings all day.

Got into work and discovered the contract worker for the giant 25,000 object digitization project started yesterday and nobody told me.

LOOK OF DISAPPROVAL

Checked in the worker and made sure that she was provided with proper documentation regarding file-naming convention, scanning requirements, and storage.

Liaison meeting - teaching with iClickers.

Preliminary meeting with the Science and Technology Center for Archaeological Research project to plan out their research centre in the Institutional Repository. Lots of exciting things were discussed. They are very interested in Open Access, so I gave them some SPARC brochures, and made sure they were aware of the Open Access Addendum for submitting articles to journals. Should see some progress with this project very soon!

Digital Collections - Functional Requirements Meeting (site redesign). Finally! Remember all those posts from the last library day in life were I was talking about moving to Drupal 6 and instituting a bunch of new features??? Well, some things have changed, but we are going to do all of them and more, including a complete site redesign from the ground up.

IR Steering Committee - Iteration 2 here to referred to as IR Working Group. That my friends, is a mouth full. Communication, workflow, advocacy, education. I'm the chair of this committee and gathered a new group of people together to move forward with the institutional repository. The meeting went very well, we have a good game plan for moving forward, and a lot of positive plans of action that should be taking place shortly. PRO-GRESS!

Rocked out to Bad Brains for the commute home.

Everything went better than expected.
