Registration is now open for the Ninth Annual Data Harmony Users Group Meeting. Sessions will be held February 18-20, 2013 at Access Innovations, 4725 Indian School Road NE, in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The DHUG meeting focuses on helping users get the most from their investment in the knowledge management software suite, which supports user organization of their information resources based on a well-built and systematically applied taxonomy or thesaurus.
Monday, February 18 will be dedicated to intensive full-day training, which provides an in-depth look at Thesaurus Master, M.A.I., and XIS (the three prime modules of the Data Harmony software suite), and a hands-on interactive jam session.
Following the unveiling of new features and options during the annual Features Update, February 19 and 20 will be dedicated to case studies and presentations focusing on how actual users have leveraged the Data Harmony software suite.
These two days will include in-depth presentations on new technical offerings, with plenty of time for discussion among members to share experiences and help translate them to other settings. Some of the speakers you will hear from are Marcie Zaharee, Mitre Corporation; Jonas Dupuich, the Public Library Of Science (PLOS); Evan Owens, the American Institute of Physics (AIP); and Karen Duerr, McGraw-Hill.
Attendees will be given a unique opportunity to interact with Access Innovations technical staff members to discuss technical and tactical issues and challenges. “This is a hands-on, nitty gritty meeting to dig into the software and fully understand how it works and why it is so popular,” said Marjorie Hlava, president of Access Innovations.
