Webinar: Save the Children Resource Libraries

Thursday, November 23, 2017

DCMI is pleased to announce a new webinar: Save the Children Resource Libraries: Aligning Internal Technical Resource Libraries with a Public Distribution Website.

Presented by Joseph Busch, Founder of Taxonomy Strategies, the webinar will discuss a recent project which has established an internal library of technical resources at the international Save the Children charity. Focussing on how this library has been aligned with the external Save the Children’s Resource Centre, the webinar will describe how the project "has reached consensus on how to accommodate and balance internal research and external communication requirements by developing a light-weight application profile."

The webinar is scheduled for December 13, 2017, 10:00am – 11:00am EST (convert this time to your local timezone here and is free for DCMI members).

Full details, including instructions for joining the webinar.


Director Transition

Saturday, October 28, 2017

2017 has been a year of transition, with Stuart Sutton stepping down after six years at the helm of DCMI as its Managing Director. He has been succeeded by Paul Walk.

DCMI would like to extend its gratitude to Stuart for his tremendous service, during a challenging period. Stuart is known for his warmth and generosity, which combined have made so many people feel welcomed into the DCMI community.

Some of our community were able to contribute their personal thoughts and messages for Stuart, and we compiled these into this document, which we had printed for Stuart in a little book to serve as a memento of his time as Director. I urge you to read that to get a measure of the DCMI community's appreciation and affection for Stuart.

We are very pleased that Stuart, in his own words, "isn't going anywhere", and that he will continue to participate in our community.

On behalf of DCMI, thank you Stuart!
