In general, the following principles hold true in respect to new installations:
- People wanting to implement or use the software suite working collaboratively with people who have already implemented it and understand it achieves optimum results for everyone and sets up a constructive working relationship for the future.
- New collaborators have content, data, metadata, expectations for styling and user interaction, language encoding, etc. relevant to their requirements which only they can provide.
- The ALA (and an increasing global community) has the architecture and systems knowledge to assist with constructing the system and teach new collaborators how best to use, manage and maintain it.
