Just this week the good folks over at CNI posted our presentation from the December 2017 CNI Members Meeting on the HathiTrust Research Center Data Capsule APpliance Grant called Data Capsule Appliance for Research Analysis of Restricted and Sensitive Data in Academic Libraries. I am embedding the video here. Enjoy!
This last week we held the first of three forums on 3D/VR in libraries sponsored by IMLS and held in Arlington, VA at the Virginia Tech Research Center. This was a fun event and was so good to work with my colleagues from VaTech, University of Oklahoma and many more…
Thanks to all of my colleagues for their support of this wonderful project!

This week I am in DC for the APTrust Member Meeting. We are being hosted by the Georgetown University Libraries in Lauinger Library. A great view of the potamac from our window. Lots of discussion and lots of talk about scaling services over time and possible new partnerships. Great discussions.

Today I am at the ALA Annual Conference in Orlando. I am at a library services platform panel hosted by @mbreeding. At this panel most of the major library services platform vendors discussed the state of the market. There was actually a pretty good analysis of the consolidation happening in the market by Jim Tallman at III. Most talked a good game about system and service interoperability but I am intrigued by the new open player Folio_LSP.
Sebastien Hammer below discussed the launch of Folio_LSP.
