The participants in the design phase of the project encourage you to attend one or both of them to learn about the design phase deliverables and the plans for the build phase.

. It will be held on Saturday, July 11th from 10:30am

In the second, members of the OLE Project design team will be on a panel at the LITA Next-Generation Catalog Interest Group program called Post-Integrated Library Systems? – The Open Library Environment (OLE) and the Unified Resource Management (URM) Projects
