Schedule for ALA Annual 2013

I yield!  Not only does Karen Schneider’s conference schedule beat up my schedule, it all but vaporizes it.

Nonetheless, I will be in Chicago, just not bouncing around quite so much.  When I’m not at MPOW‘s booth in the exhibits hall, I’ll be attending:

  • LITA Open Source Systems Interest Group (Saturday, 29 June from 1-2:30 at the Palmer House Hilton, Price Room)
  • ALCTS/LITA MARC Formats Transition Interest Group (Saturday, 29 June from 3-4 at McCormick Place, room E351)
  • LITA/ALCTS Linked Library Data Interest Group (Sunday, 30 June from 8:30-10 at McCormick Place, room N129)
  • LITA Imagineering Interest Group (Sunday, 30 June from 10:30 to 11:30 at McCormick Place, room N134)

I’m outgoing chair of the Open Source Systems IG, so I should mention that during the meeting we will be having a discussion on the organizational structures behind open source software.  For example, user groups–Evergreen has a very organized user group and so does Koha.  Is a foundation beneficial?  How is software development handled?  Is there a release manager?  How is project funding managed?

It promises to be an interesting discussion, so I invite any and all to attend.
