On Friday, May 9, the Users Council met in downtown Oakland for its annual meeting.  The group, representing all of the UC campuses, the national labs, and a group of other California partners, heard about and discussed a host of issues: CDL trends, eScholarship publishing, the Web Archiving Service, Bibliographic Services (UC-eLinks, Request, Metalib, Next Generation Melvyl Pilot), Digital Special Collections (Calisphere, OAC, and the UC image service), and Mass Digitization activities.  The day ended with a lively round robin of the group’s most important local initiatives.
