JCDL 2004 Report

I've finished typing up my report on the Joint Conference for Digital Libraries 2004, which was held in Tucson, Arizona the week of June 7. This was a very good conference, and although it was heavily weighted with attendees from Computer Science and MIS departments, there were a fair number of librarians present as well.

Six Steps to LCC@Home

A very entertaining story/set of instructions about/for setting up a home library. Hasn't every cataloger (or anyone who has ever taken a cataloging course -- beyond the required ones) done this?

Kendall Clark, the author, is not a librarian yet has some pretty insightful observations about the scope of the whole process (and cataloging in general). I think this new O'Reilly column has just made it onto my bookmarks list.

mod_oai planned

By pbinkley, Section Mindful Link Propagation

Work is underway to create an OAI module for Apache, mod_oai. "... the planned OAI-PMH interface to Apache Web servers should allow responding to requests to collect all files added or changed since a specified date, or all files that are of a specified MIME-type." This should do a lot to move OAI-PMH into the mainstream.

Linkstacking - it's not just for breakfast anymore

A previous /u/l/i story described a new service created by Dan Chudnov called unalog. I've just written a blog entry describing the basic functional concept behind unalog (linkstacking), and also pointing out some other like services. It will be interesting to see just how long it takes for linkstacking to go mainstream...
