Vocabulary Governance Telecon Times

Hi folks,
We’ve had 7 responses to the Vocabulary Governance Survey (http://bit.ly/vocab-governance-paper-survey) and based on the sections of the proposed output document, we have coverage for both authors and editors of all proposed sections! Woot woot!
We have volunteers spanning US Mountain Time, Central Time, Eastern Time, Greenwich Mean Time. Since we are widely distributed and a common time might be difficult to accommodate, we have a couple of options

Folks – I would like to attend this to help with our assessment of vocabulary governance tools. But it is at a bad time for participation from my time-zone. Maybe someone else in the group could sit in and report back?

No Telecon today + Governance Survey

Hi fellow RDA VSIG’ers,
I wanted to send everyone an update on VSIG happenings. We’ve decided to take a break from the typical telecon schedule which means today’s telecon at 1600 ET is cancelled.
We’ve been collecting responses from the Vocabulary Governance Survey, we put together after the 8th plenary. We’ll keep the survey open until Oct. 19th/20th (for our Aussie colleagues!). After that, we’ll send around a poll for a new telecon schedule to accommodate those who are interested in participating on the VSIG Governance Requirements “Suggested Output”.

Towards Vocabulary Governance Requirements White Paper

Hi folks,
At the 8th Plenary, VSIG hosted a session on Vocabulary Governance. This session reviewed some of the vocabulary governance case studies we discussed over telecons, and produced and lively discussion. The session finished with a healthy ‘show-of-hands’ for people interested in pursuing the publication of an RDA “Suggested Output” with respect to Vocabulary Governance Requirements.
