The Users Council met for its annual meeting on April 22 at Preservation Park in Oakland.

Topics discussed during the morning session included UC-eLinks, Google Scholar, Metasearch, scholarly communication, the Melvyl Catalog, and Request.  The afternoon was devoted to brief overviews of image services, digital site building, the Digital Preservation Repository and the National Digital Information Infrastructure and Preservation Program (NDIIPP), assessment at CDL, the American West Project, and the public site.

In addition to one member from every UC campus, the Users Council also has representatives from the California Academy of Sciences, the California Historical Society, the California State Library, the California State University Libraries, the Getty Research Library, Graduate Theological Union, Hastings College of the Law, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, Lawrence Livermore Lab, NRLF, SRLF, and Stanford University.

The meeting afforded an opportunity to inform members about current activities related to CDL projects, programs, and services, and to have an exchange of ideas and a time to answer questions.
