The Lighting the Way project has elected to postpone its forthcoming working meeting indefinitely as Stanford Libraries and Stanford University continues to monitor the local and global developments of COVID-19. At this point, no further arrangements have been made, and no specific dates have been set to reschedule the working meeting, although we are looking potentially rescheduling the meeting for later this summer or early this fall.

Information on the working meeting

The Lighting the Way Working Meeting is an invitational meeting for selected Forum participants, the project team, and the project's participant-advisors. It will focus on collaborative, in-depth discussions about the proposed requirements, solutions, and principles generated in the forum, and outline the work necessary to frame additional progress on project outcomes. By the conclusion of the working meeting, the project team and working meeting participants will accept assignments for additional contributions to the integration handbook and the project white paper, define the statement of principles, and articulate a set of goals for how to carry forward the vision laid out in the principles in their own institutions and projects. Working meeting participants represent those stakeholders likely to have direct responsibility for carrying this work forward within their institution or project.
