Open Library Environment Project Picks Up the Pace

Participants in the design phase of the OLE Project met in Lawrence, Kansas, earlier this month for a week-long work session. Coming out of the session are several documents that form the foundational elements of the report to be published and delivered to Mellon in July. Interested parties are invited and encouraged to sign up for the project update webinar to be held on March 31st from 3:00pm to 4:30pm (Eastern time). There will be a project update at the Coalition for Networked Information (CNI) Task Force Meeting on April 7th. Those in the midwest might also be interested in the Indianapolis OLE Workshop on April 22nd.

One document is the updated Frequently Asked Questions; this has answers to the common questions received during the previous regional workshops and webcasts. This is backed up by two other documents: first the assumptions underlying the design of OLE and the OLE project scope. The latter is notable in particular because it was updated to take on the perspective of the OLE Project in general, not specifically the design phase of the project (as it was originally).

For the most details, see the OLE Project Meeting Notes from Kansas, March 15-20, 2009.
