Heather tried to make it larger – and less cramped, more legible. If it looks good to everyone, in Jan we can discuss a tactical list on how to accomplish tasks and measure success for goals. Everyone thinks it looks great! Alicia was wondering if there was something to do to make the lines easer to see – perhaps move the boxes or something. The lines coming in and out of boxes are trying to be continuous. A key for what the lines means might be good – a little explanation of what they are….
Main components are blocks and clear how they derive from each other.
b. Engaging Partners in highlighting repository items to showcase (was Google Maps treasure hunt)
Targeting repository managers. Meeting in Jan – could be sent out to Slack. Send to community list and post in community manager slack – Charlotte to do. to go out this week.
c. Samvera Christmas card
Heather circulated card, not text, to steering. Want to get sign off today. Various editing comments…..from group.
2. Feedback from Connect
On hold for after New Year. 28 responses about Connect.
3. Planning for 2021
a. Reaching out to different audiences
b. User profiles / case studies
Any other set of audiences we might want to give attention to, to raise Samvera profile?
Heather has been considering how to hear from Avalon users and other Samvera product users that we never hear from. How to engage into the community. Make sure they feel welcome and have a space – even if using a service provider to maintain Samvera product. Some service providers have clients that want the work known and others that want to keep it private. Figure out how to engage if want to be engaged. Heather thought about a wiki page overview not targeted to developers. Something the vendors can share with clients.
A challenge still in libraries – how to format metadata for repository. But now need cataloguing capability. Selling Samvera to technical services groups. Heather will bring to WG.
Institutional home for Samvera – marketing group should keep community informed of those efforts? And discussions? Heather thinking about how to be transparent for that effort on behalf of steering. Looking for fiscal sponsorships……
