  • What national infrastructure for resource discovery in HE libraries museums and archives would we build if we started from scratch?Discussed this over 4 meetings with input from vendors and edina and mima
  • Implementing the visionWe have until 2012 to have a go at realising the visionThe vision is pleasantly baggy so we can tailor and adjust our approach as we find out more about the issues and as we learn from developments elsewhereShort iterative bursts of activity to allow us to constantly correct and adjust our approach as we goBe pragmatic! Do something useful!
  • Not just heJISC funding focused on he but if want to make it useful for researchers and avoid creating a giant silo – need to think broader to include other sectors and nations
  • Management frameworkMIMASVery collaborative – edina, collections trust etcCentral identitySustainability, technical concerns and licensingMetadata studyCollect knowledge from elsewhereBe pragmatic! Be useful!Will be renamed
  • Comms and relationshipLot of stakeholdersLot of different viewsLot of complementary workWant to ensure we keep up with this Want to ensure we digest and communicate it to people like youHave tender out for people to work on this with usForms management team with mf and me
  • Wider picture – european work, aus and nz, nat lib work, vendor work
  • Lot going on, why is it all going onOBD guide to help explain and guide through all the workComments welcome Will seek to develop this through the management framework
