MODS-3.0 out

LoC announced last week that MODS 3.0 is now available. They also have a page listing changes in this version. They also indicated they would be releasing revs to the MARCXML2MODS docs and stylesheets soon, and releasing another new version of MODS that makes some subelements global before much longer. Good news.

Stu Weibel interviews Tim Berners-Lee

As part of an OCLC environmental scan of the Library and Information communities, OCLC Researcher Stuart Weibel spoke with Tim Berners-Lee, Director of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), regarding his perspectives on major trends in the information landscape and their impact on use and access to public information.

In the course of their conversation, Stu and Tim touched on technical standards and intellectual property rights in the context of the Web as a strategic technology for libraries. They also discussed the Semantic Web activity, incentives to adopt common vocabularies and encoding standards, and institutional repositories.

The full text of the interview is available on the OCLC Research Web site, at http://www.oclc.org/research/announcements/features/tbliview.htm

Fedora(tm) on Fedora(tm)

Funny, I think I remember that the original Redhat Fedora project announcements explicitly thanked Cornell et. al. for allowing them to use the name for their "new" linux distro project. Now it's devolving into a legal [mild expletive] match. See the /. piece for more. In the meantime there's already been a thread on the DSpace list about running DSpace on Fedora. Hilarity ensues. -dchud

U Buffalo's new native XML catalog?

By ksclarke, Section Mindful Link Propagation
Posted on Thu Nov 13th, 2003 at 09:18:21 AM EST
Mark Ludwig at U Buffalo has done some interesting work on moving their OPAC to a native XML document store. The demo/test version is available for previewing/testing. What follows in the "extended copy" are snippets from a Nov. 7th, 2003 meeting (whose notes were on the Web). It seems like feedback on the project has been good and that people are offering valuable suggestions.

Zope for Education

A very exciting announcement about a partnership between Duke University and the Zope organization. Those of us who have been lobbying for our institutions to look seriously at Zope have just gained some useful ammunition.
