Back in November, I made the very painful decision to withdraw from the MLIS program at San Jose State University. A number of factors contributed to this decision, but I feel it was the right thing to do. I just wanted to throw that out there. I do plan to continue working on issues of open source software development and implementation for public libraries, however. So I plan on sticking around here for awhile, and I plan to continue updating the Literate Penguin.

I, too, have started a new blog. The Literate Penguin is about "Libraries, Open Source, and Me". I noticed that the format I'm using is similar to the Digital Librarian, but I assure you that's entirely coincidental. I'm using WordPress to run my site, and the design is an adapted modification of one of the basic Movable Type styles.

Now that I'm halfway through my Introduction to Cataloging and Classification class, I finally understand what MARC is (well... more or less, at least). Now I can start looking at XOBIS again, with an eye of possibly understanding it. Possibly.

WIBS Update

I finally have some updated information on the WIBS site. I have raved about the power of stylesheets all over the place, but WIBS is the first real example of where it all comes together. The irony is that procedural programmers seem to really suck at stylesheets, including me, but imagine what someone who achieves the Zen of stylesheet writing could do.

I've finally started officially blogging. The site is digitallibrarian.org, and as you might guess, is mostly stuff about digital libraries, librarians, and information technology. Comments, suggestions, etc. are welcome. :-) -- jf

I was overjoyed to hear back from Google that they were willing to bump up our API limit for Project FLOW. This means we can do this sort of hook in our OPAC for no hits searching.
