This is a reminder for the next online meeting of the Working Group will
take place on 18 June 2019, as usual in two sessions, the first at
and the second at 1500UTC (local times
In the call, we intend to discuss the interim results of the collaborative
work on the Google spreadsheet
. We will also talk about a possible approach to the next phase of the
development, aiming to consolidate the proposed indicators and maturity
levels. Finally, we will gather opinions on the structure and contents of a
face-to-face meeting at the 14th RDA Plenary in Finland in October 2019.
In order to give the members the opportunity to look at what we will
present at the online meeting, we have published the draft slide deck to be
used on the Working Group page at RDA
The next online meeting of the Working Group after the one next week is
scheduled for 12 September 2019. In the period between 18 June and 12
September, we would like to invite the Working Group to:
- Provide feedback to the proposals presented at the meeting of 18 June
– if at all possible, by the 30th of June
- Contribute more indicators and maturity levels – until the 31st of
- Share ideas about consolidation and weighting of indicators and
The Google spreadsheet will remain open for contributions, and the GitHub
repository  is
still available for your feedback and suggestions.
By the time of the next online meeting on 12 September, we are hoping to
present a more stable set of indicators to be included in a first draft of
the maturity model. Towards that goal, the editorial team will summarise
the contributions received until the 31st of August in the first week of
September in preparation for the call.
We are looking forward to discussing the current status and further work
with many of you next week!
