usage statistics conference

The symposium was a success and received excellent feedback.  Dennis Krieb's keynote was particularly well received.  It is clear that participants would like to see more such activities focused on how individual institutions handle data and usage.  It was equally evident that participants enjoyed the lunch and venue. 


The project continues apace.  There needs to be a few tweaks with Oxford and several others but the repository should be ready for a roll-out soon.
