Kuali OLE FC/TC Meetings in Chicago

This week am in Chicago at the new Big10 Center where we are having our fall Kuali OLE FC and TC meetings. We are happy to have this here since we have IU, Maryland, and Chicago as CIC Members of Kuali OLE. This am we got to hear from both the University of Chicago and Lehigh University about their recent implementations of Kuali OLE. We are so happy to share this news with all of our library colleagues and we hope to see more implementations in the near future.
