Sign up! Goals and Tasks for PhillyDH

PhillyDH is going to try out a new format for achieving our goals and collaborating. Starting in December, we will be holding working meetings monthly from 6:30-7:30 at Chemical Heritage Foundation on the 2nd Tuesday of each month. This means the next meeting is on December 10. This purposefully coincides with the GLAM Cafe event that occurs from 5-9 on the same schedule.

Below is a list of areas we identified as things PhillyDH wants to or should be doing. This list will change over time. If you think something is missing let us know and we can add it! For each monthly meeting you plan to attend, please pick one of the broader items listed below you would like to assist with and make it known (for the time being you can comment here or email Matt Shoemaker). This is so people can know ahead of time what they would like to work on and quickly form working groups when they arrive. Please be sure to make your selection public no later than 1 week before the meeting. If things need to change the day of the working meeting that is fine, but please express your interest for the session early so those interested in the same area can join in.

This will be moving to a page or other section of the website, but for the moment this list will remain as an event on the front page. See you on December 10!
