A new African video-based website using Plumi software and other Plone customisations claims to be “the first Television online for Africa and its diaspora”. The Africa on TV site is still under construction but already lists many videos hosted externally on YouTube. Content focuses on cultural material, including video of well-known musicians such as Youssou N’Dour, Salif Keita and Oumou Sangare.
A buildout is now also available for Plumi 0.1-final. A buildout puts together Zope, Plone, the third-party products and all customisations into one package. This makes it very easy for you to get everything up and running very quickly.

The Athenaeum Centre for Libraries (Centro di Ateneo per le Biblioteche – CAB) recently implemented Plumi for their Berlin 5 Conference on Open Access at Padua University.
The aim of the conference was bring together the various initiatives and key players within the Open Access movement in order to:
- have an overview of the developing tools that sustain Open Access in scientific data and cultural heritage dissemination
- develop the effective strategies that can contribute to the construction and implementation of this new paradigm of the scholarly communication world.
