There's a WLUG meeting tonight:

!!Kete: online digital knowledge for libraries and communities

  Hamilton City Library is using Kete to create an online knowledge
  basket of Hamilton history.  Learn more from Rae McCormick and Smita
  Biswas of the Library and Walter McGinnis of Katipo Communications.

Kete (Maori for 'basket') is an open source collaborative content and
knowledge management system, developed by Katipo Communications Ltd
and the Horowhenua Library Trust for building online community-driven
history and memories.

Hamilton City Library is using Kete to build a resource of Hamilton's
heritage, recording stories, photographs, videos and audio

Join us for a discussion covering how you can be involved, how Kete
was developed, and how Kete helps the community to make their own
stories and knowledge more accessible.

Kete was the 2007 winner of the 3M Award for Innovation in Libraries,
sponsored by 3M New Zealand in conjunction with the Library and
Information Association of New Zealand Aotearoa.

Kete was also awarded Special Mention for excellence in e-content
(North America and Oceania region) at the 2007 World Summit Awards.
