As we're still in the first week of 2016, we hope you'll allow us to cast one last glance back at 2015. The past year has been one of intense effort on the part of our Mellon grant team. From the three-day site visit by Evelyn McLellan and Justin Simpson of Artefactual Systems last January through our presentations at SAA and iPRES to our exploration of ASpace digital object records and PREMIS rights crosswalks, we've had our noses to grindstone!
We've been thrilled with the interest and engagement of our peers in the project and this blog in particular; thanks to everyone who's read or commented (and please keep the feedback coming)!
