Announcing: PBCore Office Hours

sign saying open office hours

The PBCore team has been very much focused on improving our documentation and training for anyone interested in PBCore metadata. One thing we thought might be helpful would be a monthly “office hours” session, open to anyone with questions, projects, etc. We held the first PBCore Office Hours session in January, and wow, several people showed up! And we were actually able to help them with their PBCore projects. It was a brilliant use of everyone’s time, and it’s clearly something we should continue

So we’re announcing our second PBCore Office Hours this coming Thursday, March 16th, from 2 to 3 pm Eastern time.

Anyone is welcome to attend without further complication, RSVP, etc., but we do have this lovely sign up sheet for those who would like a dedicated 20-minute claim to our attention:

PBCore Office Hours is intended for archivists of all persuasions. There is no requirement that you are a current PBCore user or “know PBCore.”  Please sign up or just join us for any PBCore-related reason whatsoever, and we’ll do our very best to help.
