Nomination for Mellon Award/Version 2.1 Release Date

Postby prom » Fri Apr 04, 2008 10:23 am

Our Associate University Librarian for IT, Beth Sandore, nominated Archon for a Mellon Award for Technology Collaboration. Please consider supporting the nomination by reviewing the information Beth submitted and submitting some supportive comments at the bottom of this page:

http://matc.mellon.org/nominate/univers ... n/archonTM

You do need to register before providing comments, but it is easy to do.

Beth's nomination reviews the project's status and some provides some potential plans should we win one of the awards. In any case, version 2.1 will be released on or before April 14, under a full open source license, and with computer, user, system administrator, and developer documentation.

It would mean so much for the future of the the project if we were awarded one of the grants. To date, UIUC has funded Archon wholly with internal resources, but we'd really like to bring the community together in a way that can only happen with some outside support.

It is helpful to get comments from both the tech side and the archival side. Also, if you could forward this on to others who can submit comments--well. . .the more support the nomination has, the better!
