    in pursuit of these project enhancements both organizational and technical accounts in part for our quietness In sync with these efforts Open Folklore co project principal investigators Julie Bobay and Timothy Lloyd have been participating in a series of gatherings and workshops on sustainable scholarship organized by Ithaka S R a research organization serving libraries scholarly societies academic publishers and others interested in scholarly communication Plans for the future of Open Folklore are being developed in the context of two additional efforts One of these is the National Folklore Archives Initiative This connected and parallel project includes AFS and many partner organizations in the field Building upon the work of its initial NEH funded phase the NFAI is like Open Folklore planning its next steps In early February OF and NFAI project participants met together in Bloomington to coordinate joint work in partnership with the IU Libraries which hosted the meetings In addition to NFAI Open Folklore is in close dialogue with the Office of Scholarly Publishing at Indiana University The OSP is a new campus unit that brings together the IU Press and the open access scholarly communications work of the IU Libraries It thus holds much relevance for both Open Folklore and the field of folklore studies Like OF and NAFAI the Office of Scholarly Publishing and the IU Press within it are making ambitious plans for the future On top of all of this Indiana University Bloomington is pursuing a number of key plans of relevance to Open Folklore In addition to a new campus strategic plan Indiana University has announced an ambitious program of digitization for all of its time based media holdings as well as a new planning effort for the digitization of other campus holding As these include the full holdings of the Archives of Traditional Music and other collections of relevance to folklorists and local communities around the world this is a big deal with immediate relevance to OF The takeaway is hopefully clear A quiet news page is a consequence of a lot of work going on behind the scenes If we stay quiet for a while longer that is only because we are
