The following notes are from a conference call meeting organized by Boston Public Library and University of Utah for the purpose of getting a better sense of newspaper-related development efforts in the Hydra community and to get feedback on BPL/Utah's concept of a grant-funded project to develop a set of gems for newspaper management. (Call for participation went out on the Hydra-Tech and hydra-community lists (https://groups.google.com/d/msg/hydra-community/G960cvMYtDc/Rq6mssCwAgAJ.)
