Midwest Data Librarian Symposium (MDLS) 2020 To Be Held Virtually

Hello all,
We hope this message finds you well.
Given the current impact of COVID-19 on our daily lives, it is difficult to know what the fall of this year will look like for many of us. Given that travel may be difficult due to limited professional development budgets or potential risks to health, the 2020 planning committee and the slated ‘21, ‘22, ‘23 campus hosts have decided that MDLS 2020 will be held virtually.

Re: [rda-tailresearchdata-ig][rda-libresearchdata][software-source-code-ig] [rda-tailresearchdata-ig][rda-libresearchdata][software-source-code-ig] A new(?) aspect of software and the FAIR principles

Dear Dan,
I can accept if it is outside of the scope of the group. But because there was no more appropriate
group, a sent the message to some groups I am member of. If I can find enough people interested,
we might decide to start another group.
