Infopeople is a state-wide project that serves as the training arm of the California State Library, primarily serving libraries throughout the state. Infopeople's online and webinar students hail from libraries across the United States and several other countries, numbering in the thousands.
The Galecia Group provides website and application development services to the library community from basic library system websites to complex data-driven applications. Galecia consultants use open source tools, such as Drupal and WordPress, and contribute code to open source repositories when possible.
Built consultantsgiveback.org website to support the Consultants Give Back (CGB) project that connects library representatives with consultants who are offering some free consulting at one of the conferences. ASCLA now manages the CGB project and has decided to use the ALA websites.
Developed a new website for the State Library of California's Get Involved project. The objective of the project is to provide an easy-to-use website for library staff working with library volunteers. The concept was based another site built and maintained by the Group, the Rural Initiative's Resource Round-Up website, http://resourceroundup.net/.
Helped establish and managed the Open Source Open Libraries Consortium in cooperation with Peninsula Library System and Califa. The goal of the consortia was to "empower libraries and library consortia by encouraging participation and collaboration in software products generally, and encouraging them to consider an Open Source Library System such as Koha or Evergreen."
Over the course of the project we moved 9 library systems to Koha and helped three library systems begin evaluating Evergreen and Fulfillment. The project was concluded in October, 2013.
