In response to suggestions from the user community, and due to the progress of the URM development, Ex Libris announced at the end of May 2010 a change in the structure and work of the URM Focus Groups.
In order to optimize communication the existing four groups and their separate listservs were consolidated into one. The work of the Focus Groups will be now more interactive, reviewing the actual developments and providing detailed feedback. This new process started in June 2010, and in Ghent the Focus Group members met to discuss the new structure and the progress made up to then.
Besides restructuring the work of the groups, Ex Libris have promised to put together a more active programme of regular customer webinars on the URM which should start later in 2010.
