[CODE4LIB] journal site down?

2009-07-31 Thread Dan Chudnov

Seems like something's wrong at http://journal.code4lib.org/ .

In the meantime, if you need journal access, a recent mirror is  
available here:


  http://journal-backup.onebiglibrary.net/issues/issue7.html

...note, though, that the home page over there is a copy of the  
redirect now up at the real site, hence the issue 7 path.

Thanks for bringing this to our attention, Dan. Looks like there was a
clerical error at iBiblio, but all is now well.

Thanks for maintaining the mirror. dchud++

[CODE4LIB] developer competition - library usage data

2009-07-31 Thread David Pattern
Hi everyone

Just a quick plug for a developer competition that's being run by the JISC 
funded MOSAIC (Making Our Shared Activity Information Count) Project in the 
UK: http://www.sero.co.uk/jisc-mosaic-competition.html

The usage data can be found for download via: 
http://library.hud.ac.uk/wikis/mosaic/index.php/Project_Data

...and the Data Collection Guide explains the XML format of the data: 
http://library.hud.ac.uk/wikis/mosaic/index.php/Project_Documentation

At present, it's just book usage data from the University of Huddersfield 
that's available to play around with, but we're hoping that it will be joined 
by some usage data from a few other UK academic libraries in due course.

As the XML usage data files are pretty big (i.e. opening them in Internet 
Explorer is a sure fire way of killing a PC!), I've put together a quick  
dirty API for grabbing subsets of the data:

Tony Hirst (from the Open University in the UK) has done a helpful blog post 
here: http://bit.ly/8RjYU

In terms of the competition, it's open to anyone (i.e. not just developers 
based in the UK).  The prizes are in UK sterling and the competition is being 
run according to UK law (just in case competition laws vary from country to 
country).

Have fun!
