C4L MDC Meetings in 2011

September 13

Tuesday, 13 September, 2011 10-11.20ish at Arlington Public Library Central Branch in Arlington, VA

With representatives present from Public, Academic, and Special Libraries, this looked to be a great start to rejuvenating the Chapter. (School Librarians, come out and play!) We had a great discussion about Linked Data. We reaffirmed that we'll hold quarterly meetings, and that doing so regularly will help keep things rolling. We hope to have diverse subjects to explore to keep everyone's interest. We'll hold off on formal governance until a larger group necessitates formality.

The Martin Luther King Library in the District would like help with Library Lab DC if anyone would like to participate in that endeavour. This is also a wonderful place to go if you're looking for spot to house open collaboration.

There were a couple of interesting meetings and events to attend that we shared with one another.


  • 10 - Noon Main Meeting
    • Introductions
    • Discussion of current venue.
    • Shameless plug for ( Fall for the Book)
    • Hash out possibilities of other venues.
    • Is the frequency right? Will quarterly meetings still work?
    • Is the Chapter's problem indicative of fragmented general regional Library collaboration?
    • Update on the wider code{4}lib community
    • Discuss and invite folks to get involved with Library Lab DC at the DCPL
    • Requests, ideas, and volunteers for topics for future gatherings
    • Governance (do we want any?)
  • 12:15–1:30 Lunch

There are a whole bunch of lunch spots near the Library.
