Authority support in Evergreen 2.0

Posted on Fri 29 April 2011 in Libraries

I'm at the Evergreen 2011 conference in balmy Decatur, Georgia... which wasn't a sure thing yesterday, given that the day started with an eight hour delay at the Sudbury airport due to fog - not to mention having to fly through the storm that spawn a tornado in Alabama. After all that, though, it's great to be back in the same physical space as the vibrant Evergreen community!

Yesterday afternoon I gave a presentation on Authorities in Evergreen 2.0, covering (as the title suggests) Evergreen's support for authority records in the 2.0 release (as well as a peek at the future of Evergreen 2.2).

The session appeared to be well-received - yay! - and I tried recording it on my colleague Rick Scott's Sansa Clip+. Hopefully that worked out and I'll be able to update this post with the audio, so you can have the full-on audio and slide experience.

The presentation is available under the Creative Commons Attribution Share Alike license, in the hopes that others will be able to use it for training purposes, to extend and improve it, and generally help out with the adoption of Evergreen.
