CC-PLUS Advisory Board members held a meeting on August 24, 2017. During this meeting, the Board reviewed a preliminary diagram of the software components and a draft communication plan. Surveys and webinars are planned to gather feedback from ICOLC as the project progresses. The Board also reviewed a recommendation by Scott Ross that PALCI contract with Hostwinds for a server with backup and security services for hosting the proof of concept software. Exciting news learned at this meeting was that the project will be able to use code developed by Scott Ross for another library. This code focuses on the ingest and validation of data, and is complementary to the presentation layer code provided by Jisc. Use Cases/Personas will be prepared for the next meeting.
