Join the New PBCore User Group Listserv

7.9.10 – NOTE: This post no longer valid. Join the listserv here.

Many of you have already joined the PBCore Listserv. We now have a new dedicated listserv group that is specifically devoted to the questions, comments, and advice of those who are actually using the PBCore metadata dictionary, or who are about to implement it.

The regular PBCore Listserv will continue as a way to communicate announcements and updates on the overall PBCore project.

The new PBCore User Group Listserv is intended as a forum for PBCore users to share successes, ask for help when stuck, find inspiration in the way others are implementing PBCore technology, and help others avoid the hurdles that some have already experienced and overcome.

We expect to expand the capabilities of our virtual PBCore User Group by creating threaded discussions that will batch together questions, comments, and answers related to common themes and concerns. These will of course be searchable discussions, thus creating a knowledge base for our PBCore Community of Practice.

    FYI, the email address for subscribing to the User Group listserv is not a valid address. Missing an “_”?
