I'm glad that you'll try to check in to the conference. It's a new medium
for us and we are trying to test it with our content. There are challenges.
As for an IP test of the video equipment, that would have to be with the
equipment in the Learning Center, not our new center in the Adams
Building. The Adams network is in the process of converting from token
ring to ethernet, so our equipment isn't hooked up for IP, only ISDN.
The Learning Center IP address is: 126.96.36.199. The equipment is always
on, so you could try connecting at any time. Try to pick a time when we on
the east coast wouldn't be likely to be using it so you won't risk getting
a busy signal.
Congratulations to you both on the work you continue to do. I'm sure the
participants of your workshops are the beneficiaries of many wonderful
ideas and tips for using primary sources in their work. These electronic
bells and whistles can only do so much; it's always the people that make
the ultimate connection.
Happy holidays to you and yours,
