While photo sharing, link logging, and Web logging sites make it easy to use and reuse content, barriers still exist that limit the reuse of library resources within new Web services. [<a href="#1">1</a>][<a href="#2">2</a>] To support the reuse of library information in Web 2.0-style services, we need to allow many types of applications to connect with our information resources more easily.

This is especially true considering that, as a group, the library community has cultivated a very vibrant open source community over the past ten or so years. One wonders then, why this particular service has been ceded to the world of commercial vendors. One can speculate that the creation and management of a metasearch knowledge base has likely played a large role [<a href="#1">1</a>].</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue47/reese" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue47 feature article terry reese california digital library d-lib magazine iso niso oai oregon state university serials solutions aggregation algorithm api authentication data database digital library dublin core framework gis infrastructure knowledge base metadata mods open source openurl repositories research schema search technology software standards widget xml z39.50 Sat, 29 Apr 2006 23:00:00 +0000 editor 1231 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Code4lib 2006 http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue47/code4lib-2006-rpt <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue47/code4lib-2006-rpt#author1">Jeremy Frumkin</a> and <a href="/issue47/code4lib-2006-rpt#author2">Dan Chudnov</a> report on the inaugural conference of the Code4lib community of programmers, hackers, and techies working in or with libraries and information systems.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>Focused as a highly technical event, the inaugural code4lib conference resulted from the combined efforts of the code4lib community, a loosely connected set of programmers, hackers, librarians, and library technologists who pursue technologies related to libraries and information.

Many users abandon old information management tools whenever new tools are easier, faster, more comprehensive, more intuitive, or simply 'cooler.' Many successful new tools adhere to a principle of simplicity - HTML made it simple for anyone to publish on the Web; XML made it simple for anyone to exchange more strictly defined data; and RSS made it simple to extract and repurpose information from any kind of published resource [<a href="#1">1</a>].</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue43/chudnov" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue43 feature article daniel chudnov jeremy frumkin raymond yee richard cameron ross singer d-lib magazine georgia institute of technology google ims ims global learning consortium jisc library of congress niso oai oclc oregon state university sakai university of california berkeley yale university citeulike iesr jisc information environment archives bibliographic data bison blog browser cataloguing cookie data database digital library firefox framework google scholar html identifier infrastructure interoperability javascript lucene metadata mets mods oai-pmh open archives initiative openurl personalisation repositories research rss schema search technology service registry sfx software sru srw standards technorati uddi url usability web browser web resources web services wordpress wsdl xml Fri, 29 Apr 2005 23:00:00 +0000 editor 1136 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Towards Library Groupware With Personalised Link Routing http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue40/chudnov <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue40/chudnov#author1">Daniel Chudnov</a>, <a href="/issue40/chudnov#author2">Jeremy Frumkin</a>, <a href="/issue40/chudnov#author3">Jennifer Weintraub</a>, <a href="/issue40/chudnov#author4">Matthew Wilcox</a> and <a href="/issue40/chudnov#author5">Raymond Yee</a> describe a potential groupware framework for integrating access to diverse information resources and distributed personal collection development.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>'Library groupware' - a set of networked tools supporting information management for individuals and for distributed groups - is a new class of service we may choose to provide in our libraries.
