BIGWIG Partnership

In 2009, CLENE will be partnering with the LITA BIGWIG Interest Group to add a combination of online and live components to the Training Showcase.

This partnership is in the process of being negotiated (as of Jan 14) but we've discussed their involvement taking a number of different shapes. There are a variety of options which scale nicely depending on how much we (and they) want to bite off.

Peter suggested that he'd like to see some content from the training showcase being made available online to CLENE members who can't attend. This content could be hosted our wiki and could include any mixture of these elements:

We're not going to do all of these things--just pick a few things from the menu for starters. It was also suggested that BIGWIG might staff a booth at the Training Showcase. This would give them the opportunity to discuss/explain how they've helped us integrate the new technologies, and also give them a platform for recruitment/awareness.
