ER&L 2015 Closing Keynote

Yesterday I was in Austin, TX to give the closing keynote for the ER&L 2015 Conference. I hated that I could not get to town sooner to take in more of the conference. Especially, the big discovery panel and the talk from Marshall Breeding (open source central index – now that is a cool idea). However, I did get into town (sans luggage) to give the closing keynote and I had a blast. Below are my slides from the talk and I will work to put up the full stream soon.

I will get to attend the exciting new conference Designing for Digital (#Design4Lib) happening today and will have more on that event soon at this blog.

In the picture below you will see @MikeFurlough, HT Executive Director, discussing latest developments from the HathiTrust Digital Library.

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.
