The final agenda for the RLG Programs 2007 Annual Partners Meeting was posted to our website just this week. It’s a great program, and includes a half day to hang out with RLG program officers and OCLC research scientists and talk about our plan of work (kind of like office hours). There will be two keynote talks — Dylan Tweney, News Editor for Wired Magazine, and Tim Burke, Associate Professor in the Department of History at Swarthmore College.
Professor Burke was recently a featured speaker at the Bibliographic Control Working Group meeting on “use and users” last month. Karen Coyle has an excellent summary of Burke’s talk, and I recommend it to you (as Günter has previously). I was going to blog about this meeting, but it was so well covered elsewhere, I couldn’t bring myself to write about it myself.
We’ll also have a panel on one of our program areas, shared print. I wrote a little about shared print the other day, and was reminded that we have quite a bit about our shared print program on our website.
The meeting will be June 4th and 5th. Please plan to come and register. More information about the meeting (who should attend, background information) is here.
