d-lib article on some LC tool development

My colleague Justin Littman has just published an excellent article in the January/February 2009 issue of D-Lib Magazine: "A Set of Transfer-Related Services."

"The Office of Strategic Initiative's (OSI) Repository Development Team (RDT) is developing a portfolio of services and components to address the challenges posed by scaling transfer processes. While the portfolio is expanding, the focus of this article will be on two core services, the Inventory Service and the Workflow Service. Before proceeding to examine these services, it will be useful to further delineate the transfer problem space. After examining these services, their role in mitigating preservation risks will be considered."
