Staff from the CDL and from the UCSD Libraries held a two-day meeting in late July to discuss possibilities for collaborating on the development of technology-based services and tools.  Among the nearly twenty attendees there was agreement on the advantages of co-development and in the value of establishing a model for other two-way and multi-part collaborations among the UC libraries.  The meeting resulted in the enumeration of general cooperative development processes that could be applied in many projects.  A project plan for the development of an improved and sustainable multi-database search interface – the evolution of SearchLight – was also framed.  Principals at the meeting are preparing further information for all-campus and CDL advisory groups.
