The team is currently holding public demonstrations of software development work each Thursday at 2:30 PM.

As in the previous week, TDL developer Joe Devries served as moderator for the sprint review and demonstrated work completed on two user stories that dealt with automating the process by which the Preservation Network schedules the harvesting of content at the various nodes of the network.

Representatives from TDL member schools were in attendance, both in person and remotely, including members from Texas State University, Texas Tech University, the University of Houston, and the University of Texas at Austin.
