  • 28. there is a strong need for real life examples of increased user engagement and app developmentWednesday, September 19, 2012
  • 29. We need to redefine performance indicators beyond visits to the institutions websiteWednesday, September 19, 2012
  • 30. Work needs to be done to connect the information through semantic relations, persistent identifiers and improved multi-ligual functionalitiesWednesday, September 19, 2012
