    Dear All,

    In 2004 the ePrints UK Project (<http://www.rdn.ac.uk/projects/eprints-uk/>http://www.rdn.ac.uk/projects/eprints-uk/) will be running a series of 5 workshops around the UK that will provide an introduction to eprints and institutional repositories and the issues surrounding them. These workshops will be aimed at HE/FE librarians, information systems staff and academics and will be free to attend.

    The first workshop will be held at the University of Bath on Friday 6th February 2004. Further details of the programme are available at:


    You can register for the event at:


    Any questions on the event please contact Natasha Piper (<mailto:n.piper@ukoln.ac.uk>n.piper@ukoln.ac.uk).

    The ePrints UK project is developing a series of national, discipline-focused services through which the higher and further education community can access the collective output of e-print papers available from compliant Open Archive repositories, particularly those provided by UK universities and colleges.

    Dear Colleague:

    The following Technology Source Author Forums are scheduled for Thursday, December 11. These forums are offered in collaboration with ULiveandLearn, an e-learning company that uses a technology to allow participants to interact directly with TS authors via their desktops. You may sign up to participate in any of these free webchats by going to <http://ts.mivu.org/default.asp?show=webchats&issue=246>http://ts.mivu.org/default.asp?show=webchats&issue=246

    and clicking on the SIGN UP NOW button.

    11:00 A.M. - 11:45 A.M. ET: Zane L. Berge, University of Maryland Baltimore County, and Greg Kearsley, independent consultant, will discuss the results of their study focusing on factors that limit the long-term viability of distance training programs.

    12:00 P.M. - 12:45 P.M. ET: Drawn by the convenience of PowerPoint, Robert Sommer, now professor emeritus at the University of California-Davis, replaced his 35 mm slides and transparencies with digital slides. He will discuss the good, the bad, and the ugly lessons he learned in this process.

    1:00 P.M. - 1:45 P.M. ET: Establishing a campus-wide consensus on learning outcomes, evaluation criteria, and the institutional role of technology seems nearly impossible. Colleen Carmean, Arizona State University West, will discuss the obstacles she and her colleagues faced while trying to develop transformative assessment standards for their institution.
