We are now in the process of establishing an ORDS User Group, which will have responsibility for prioritizing future improvements and functionality, as well as raising any issues concerning the ORDS software and service. The precise terms of reference for the group will be debated at its preliminary meeting in January. The Group will probably meet once every two months for an hour thereafter.
We would like to have representation from all academic divisions in the User Group, and we do not intend to restrict the membership to actual users at this point – the user base is still very small at present, though growing. We will also consider volunteers who are considering using the ORDS in the future but who are waiting for funding confirmation or additional functionality to be in place first.
If you are interested in being part of the User Group, please get in touch via firstname.lastname@example.org.
