P11 TAB-Chair meeting

Dear colleagues,
You have seen the agenda of the P11 TAB/Chair meeting. One item is to
follow up the Roadmap discussion. It would be good if we have a
volunteer to present each of Gaithersburg Roadmap splinters. I can do
the one on "RDA metadata" (and you can comment the document I prepared
as promised). Who volunteers for the others?
Cheers
Francoise

pptx of 7 questions for WG/IG report-out

Hi all,
For any group representative doing a report-out on Thursday or Friday, I’ve posted a .pptx slide with the 7 questions we discussed today for convenience. The 7 questions are also listed in the notes document towards the end of Day 1 notes should you prefer to use a different format. Please cap your summary at 10 minutes (shorter is also great!).

meeting location

Note that the RDA WG/IG Chairs meeting will be in Building 101, Lecture Room B, not D.
When you come through the main entry of 101, turn left down the corridor with the windows on your left. LR B is on the right, past the lobby area.
If anyone is in need of transportation let me know – I could do a shuttle run and provide some rides.

alternative lodging options

I am sensitive to indoor air quality and the Hilton, like most big hotels, does not have rooms with windows that can be opened, forcing one to breath recirculated air with formaldehyde and other gasses emitted from furniture, carpets, etc.

I note that the Townepalce Suites, which does have rooms with windows that open, is less one mile walking distance from the entry gate at NIST.  Granted, in bad weather the walk might not be so pleasant (e.g. splashing of slush from the highway if it's snowy), but I prefer to stay there.
