more indications of support 5/28/10

Hi all,

Following up on Washington's support, when Edward Miner (who's in Africa

along the support of his AUL and Director for Collections and Scholarly
Communication, Edward Shreeves, which was reiterated again this afternoon.

Great to see this all moving forward!
