My agenda for Q1 2010

My agenda for the first few months of 2010 is becoming clearer. Consider this a snapshot of the things that will be crossing my desk and bouncing around my mind.

  • Reviewing digital library platforms for the e-Content Stewardship Council
  • Reviewing functional requirements for an institution-wide repository of electronic records
  • Learning more about “big data” and continuing the data management discussion
  • Evaluating the DLT archival storage prototype and joining the technical team of the Data Storage Working Group
  • Evaluating next-generation information discovery tools for the libraries with I-Tech
  • Evaluating change management solutions with a team from Penn State’s ITANA group
  • Working on requirements for a draft institutional identifier standard with the NISO I2 working group
  • Attending Code4Lib 2010
  • Meetings, meetings, meetings
  • Continuing to absorb as many of the following as possible: strategic plans, project portfolios, process management documents, and various and sundry reports, wikis, and blogs

My plate is rather full; fortunately, for now, I’ve got a big appetite.
