    "The Project Did Not Go Entirely As Planned"
    Failure can teach just as much, if not more, than success.  A panel of OMG-project veterans share their "at least we can laugh at it now" experiences, with an emphasis on the value of acknowledging problems and what can be learned when a "Project Doesn't Go Entirely As Planned".  The battle-scarred panel includes:
    • George Blood - Safe Sound Archives (chair)
    • Charlie Kolb - National Endowment for the Humanities
    • Tom Clareson - Lyrasis
    • Janet Gertz - Columbia University Libraries
    • Liz Bishoff - The Bishoff Group
    • Diane Vogt-O'Connor - Library of Congress. 
    Please join us and be prepared to tell your own battle stories as well.
    Chair - Adrienne Bell, Etherington Conservation Services
