Hi Merrilee,

won't be at the following 2 days of METS meetings although 2 folks from
UCSD will be.

RLG Forum  -- To Have and to Hold: Metadata and Institutional
Repositories

Date:       Wednesday, 7 April, 2004
Hosted by:  The Hoover Institution, Stanford University
Location:   Stauffer Auditorium, Herbert Hoover Memorial Building
            Stanford, CA 94305

Program Description:
This one-day forum will highlight new developments in metadata
standards
for description, discovery, and delivery of electronic information
resources. The program will also feature presentations about some
institutional repositories and repository systems that are used to
manage
and store digital information and how various metadata standards are
used
in these instances.

Currently, institutions have several options for institutional
repository
systems. Open Source software such as DSpace and FEDORA are freely
available and are finding many implementers. Still other institutions
have
opted to build their own repositories using a variety of software
choices
and systems. Speakers will share their choices and the lessons they've
learned.

This educational opportunity is open to all RLG member staff and to
those
attending METS Opening Day.  We are grateful to the Hoover Institution
at
Stanford University for graciously hosting this event.

Speakers and a full agenda will be announced shortly.  The program will
be
similar to the well-received RLG Forums held in December, 2003 in
Washington, DC and Chicago.
