Ithaca, NY Please join colleagues on July 20, 2010 from 9 AM-5 PM for a no-cost, one-day regional Fedora conference.
In a tough economy, it’s especially important to make sure we stay in touch with our local colleagues in the Fedora Commons community. This day-long conference in Massachusetts will give us an opportunity to hear from other Northeast Fedora users. More importantly, it will give us an opportunity to talk to each other and swap ideas and thoughts about the way we use Fedora Commons.
Thornton Staples of DuraSpace will be present to give an overview of DuraSpace, Fedora, and DuraCloud.
Register online at http://tuftsfedora.eventbrite.com/>. For more information, contact Deborah Kaplan at Tufts DCA, deborah.kaplan -at- tufts.edu.
The schedule for the day is still evolving, and there may be time for additional presentations. If you have interest in giving a short presentation or demonstration, please contact us by May 1. If you are interested in facilitating a Birds of a Feather session, please contact us by May 1.
Registration is free and includes talks, breakout sessions, and morning and afternoon refreshments. Lunch is not included. The conference will be held in the heart of Boston’s Chinatown, walking distance to many excellent restaurants. Conference registrants will receive updates as the program takes shape.
