VALA - day 1

The key note speaker this morning was Andy Powell of Eduserve. Watch out for the podcast of his talk and for his paper to become available - both would be well worth hearing/reading. Powell talked about global repositories as a model instead of institutional repositories. He also reminded us to consider the architecture of the web as an model, instead of trying to reinvent what is there. Libraries could look to global repositories like technorati and flickr.
