Winchester, MA Heavy fog over Washington caused several attendees to miss the start of the Coalition for Networked Information (CNI) Fall Member Meeting held on December 10-11, 2012. Clifford Lynch, CNI Executive Director, began with an overview of strategic CNI activities in which he reminded the audience that "Scholarly practice does not stand still". This set the stage for several DuraSpace-related presentations that focused on programs, software and services that support access to and preservation of resources for scholarship.
