Candy likes to say that she wound the students up at the beginning of the semester and then they all went off and created a digital library, with a little bit of feather-ruffling and panic on the side for her to deal with. She also took up any spare time with lectures on theories and principles of digital library creation and maintenance.
The Project Manager showed the class how Project Management tools can be used to chart progress and indentify critical paths. He took minutes at each meeting, helped set the agenda, and tried to keep us on tracks

Quality Control Committee
Paul Baker, Lauren Rodriguez
This committee's work was all done at the last minute, checking that everything worked as intended and that content was clear and accurate.

Web Design Committee
Jen Langley, Joyce Myeza, Aiden Graham
This committee created the site architecture, developed the look and feel for all pages, and coded the structure into which content would be deployed.
