The ARKs in the Open team has been out on the road, attending the DuraSpace Summit as well as the Coalition for Networked Information (CNI) Spring meeting in San Diego, California. Both events provided great networking opportunities, and, at the DuraSpace meeting, we were able to see first hand how its community-based open source projects function.

Back home, the ARKs in the Open team is now hard at work developing Advisory Team invitations which we expect to send out shortly. We are very proud to have attracted interest and support from the following organizations on four continents:

  • Australian National Data Service
  • Bibliothèque nationale de France
  • Bibliothèque nationale de Luxembourg
  • Consejo Nacional de Investigaciones Científicas y Técnicas – Argentina
  • The British Library
  • Family Search International
  • Indiana University
  • Institut Internationale de la Marionnette
  • National Center for Atmospheric Research
  • Portico
  • Sempiternelia
  • Smithsonian Institution
  • Texas A&M University Libraries
  • University College Dublin
  • University of Arizona
  • University of California, San Francisco
  • University of Houston Libraries
