What’s going on in the Yerkes Observatory Library? Closed, being integrated into U Chi collections. Study group that has been formed to see what to do with it. Duplicates will stay there and go with the observatory. The archives are being moved. Old images are being digitized and will be available for free on the web.
Cost recovery or chargeback?
Is anyone considering? No, not really. ('cept me)
IRs – any astro datasets?
There’s talk of it, and it’s been discussed with the library and IT but either too much inertia, or the system isn’t ready or robust enough for astro datasets.
