In May, RLG convened a meeting on international archival gateways, hosted by one of our members, The National Archives in the UK, and funded by the Delmas Foundation. This was a kick-off meeting, and RLG will be forming a working group to take the discussions forward.
If you’ll be at the upcoming Society of American Archivists annual meeting later this month, there will be a report about this meeting at the RLG Roundtable.
There’s a lot going on with archives and archival standards, and I’m sure I’ll have more to report after SAA.
