By Chris Wilper, Technical Lead and Developer, DuraSpace Fedora Commons hosted a very successful Developer Open House at OR09 earlier this summer. Thanks to all who attended and participated.

As the developer-community around Fedora and DuraSpace continues to grow and evolve, it makes even more sense to create communications channels that enable broad involvement.

Washington DC The Association of Research Libraries (ARL) is seeking proposals for 2010 SPEC survey topics. For more than 35 years ARL has gathered and disseminated data through the SPEC survey program to assist libraries in the continuous improvement of their management systems. Each year, ARL works with librarians in North America to develop six surveys of the ARL membership on “hot topics” related to research library policies and practices. (Survey authors do not need to work at an ARL member library, but only ARL libraries are surveyed.)
