PLA and an Evergreen Users Group, Birds of a Feather gathering? 5


Hi folks,

I was wondering if any of you would be interested in gathering together to talk about Evergreen during the Public Library Association’s National Conference (http://www.placonference.org/) in March? Most of the Evergreen developers will be there and we can arrange for a meeting space. The notion is that anyone interested in the project (software, community, vendors, etc.) could be invited, and we could style it as a Birds of a Feather-type gathering, or maybe even the nucleus of an independent Evergreen Users Group.

What do you think? What sort of topics or activities would you be interested in? Would you be interested in something like this at other times or places? Is anyone interested in helping to organize this?

Thanks!

LOCATION UPDATE:March 27, 5:30pm – 7:30pm at the Minneapolis Marriot City Center, Gray & Wayzata rooms (8th floor)

    Jason, our library is not currently using Evergreen, but wonder if you would mind me sitting in your session? Our state is considering a consortial project (very early discussions) and Evergreen is one of those in discussion. If you don’t mind, will you send me your meeting time and place?

    Thank you.
