    • Finding developer cycles locally is a big challenge and will partner with a service provider (Ubiquity) to do the work.

    • British Library has had a software architect looking at Hyku for the past 18 months and will provide input to see how this project will integrate (beyond this project) to other areas (like digital preservation) and feed that information back to Ubiquity to ensure their development is mindful of broader needs and fed back to the project. 

    • They need feedback, questions to help guide this project, please provide that.

    • Richard Green asking if we can have a presentation that was done by the British Library (by Sarah _____) on the work British Library has already done with Ubiquity at next phone call

      • Yes, someone from Rachel’s team can likely do that.

    • Jon Dunn asked about community efforts on analytics and making sure work done here is not duplicated.

      • Ellen and Jon will discuss further to make sure there is no duplication of effort.

    • Hannah - is there a list of deliverables and timelines to accomplish these milestones.

      • There are initial milestones, they are working on setting what those will be and that will be posted to the web site when they have the time.

    • We were looking to have it in Pittsburg immediately following Code4Lib which is Sunday 8 March - Wednesday 11 March, 2020 (there is no LDCX next year) but we have been unable to find an affordable venue.  We are currently exploring other options (and therefore other dates in March/April).

      • We may shuffle the week around a bit, so workshops are at end of conference instead of the beginning. This may be changed because of Halloween and people wanting to make it back home to families.
