As you are planning your trip to the 2013 LITA Forum in Louisville in mid-November, plan to stay a few hours longer to attend the ResourceSync Tutorial happening after the close of the main conference on Sunday. Herbert van de Sompel will lead this 3-hour session where attendees can learn about how the emerging ResourceSync standard can be used to synchronize web resources between servers. There is no cost to attend the post-conference tutorial, but we would appreciate knowing how many people are coming. Please select the post conference checkbox on the registration form to let us know.
On a related note, version 0.9.1 of the ResourceSync Framework Specification was published today. We are encouraging final feedback to the ResourceSync Google Group as the editing wraps up and the specification begins the formal NISO voting process.
Thanks go out to the LITA headquarters staff for helping with the post-conference local arrangements.
