Greetings to all. I recently discovered your site and have been enjoying
reading many of the postings, and wish I had such resources when I was in
grad school. As this is my first post, I wish it could be a contribution,
such as a bit of dialogue about the Vector Space Model or MOD-OAI, or some
such, but alas, today I wear a slightly different hat of Project Manager.

company CACI, providing contract support to the Library of Congress (OSI)
in its digital preservation initiatives. I hope that this posting keeps
in the spirit of this discussion group, as I simply wish to provide a
unique outlet for a talented person seeking to make his or her
contribution to the field of Digital Libraries. Here goes:
