The weekly catch up is an opportunity to raise issues, share useful tips and resources. The format has been useful for the latest round of Seeding the Commons projects. You might like to participate in various specific training/presentations/workshops that are being conducted in the same space between 11:00am - 12:00pm. For example, last Wednesday, Luis Martinez-Uribe spoke about how to develop a Data Management a Roadmap for your University.

2. ReDBox collaboration

Many hands make light work. 13 Universities have indicated that they are deploying ReDBox for their Metadata Stores projects. Would you like to share in the benefits of working collaboratively? Please contact Amanda Nixon either through the ReDBox list [redbox-repo@googlegroups.com] or directly [amanda.nixon@flinders.edu.au] [Ph (08) 8201 5217].

Amanda asks you to consider:

  1. An estimate of when you may be able to commit to this development model
  2. An indication of whether you will be contributing with cash or in kind

Would you send Amanda questions/comments/suggestions/changes to the original ReDBox feature development document and the list of possible fields for ReDBox 17 October (earlier if possible)? She will then will try to work them into something coherent that can be jointly endorsed and send to QCIF.

Note. You can access a working list of the choices of optional deliverables [Google doc]. N.B. this list may be slightly out of alignment with incoming Project Plans. Please contact Simon Pockley if you have updates.
