In-Reply-To (BBEEJNNNCBOOLPHKJHMCCENJCKAA-lauras-wayne-edu)
Thanks for the suggestion! I agree that it would be good tohave a
Greenstone presence at LITA and so I've just sent off a proposal to
give a tutorial/demo session on the Greenstone Librarian Interface.

This is not really what you're suggesting though -- and I really like
the idea of what you're suggesting, a panel of Greenstone users. I
won't be able to organize that, I'm afraid, but if someone else felt
like getting together such a proposal I'd support it most strongly, and I'd certainly be keen to be involved myself -- definitely personally
and not virtually :-)

cheers
ian
