Mike,

Thanks for the feedback!  That does sound (to me) like something we
should fix - I'm looking into it.

All the best,
Will

 Subject: [CODE4LIB] Conference followup; open position at
 Google Cambridge

 As a first-time Code4Lib attendee, let me say thanks for a fun
 conference - a very interesting and creative group of people!

 A question I posed to some of you in person, and would love to hear
 more answers to: What are you doing with Google Books?  Do you have a
 new way of using that resource?  Are there things you'd like to do
 with it that aren't possible yet?

 Also, a couple of people asked if Google is hiring.  Not only are we
 hiring large numbers of software engineers, but we're now seeking a
 librarian / software developer (below).  I'm happy to take questions
 about either.

 All the best,
 Will

 Metadata Analyst

 Google Books is looking for a hybrid librarian/software developer to
 help us organize all the world's books.  This person would work
 closely with software engineers and librarians on a variety of tasks,
 ranging from algorithm evaluation to designing and implementing
 improvements to Google Books.

 Candidates should have:
 * An MLS or MLIS degree, ideally with cataloguing experience
 * Programming experience in Python, C++, or Java
 * Project management experience a plus, but not required

 This position is full-time and based in Cambridge, MA.




[CODE4LIB] code4lib.hu meetup

2010-03-10 Thread Király Péter

Hi,

I would like to ask you, whether is there somebody, from whom I can ask
permissions, to use the name code4lib.hu for an unconference meetup, where
Hungarian library coders could talk, and pair-program in a style of a Drupal
codesprint or OCLC mashaton?

2010-03-10 Thread Jonathan Rochkind
There's nobody to ask formal permission for, but I think you've done the 
right thing by suggesting it on this listserv and seeing what the 
community thinks.


As one member of the community, I think that's a great idea and an 
appropriate use of the code4Lib name, and I expect that everyone else 
will think so too. 

You are also welcome to use the Code4Lib wiki if it's useful for your 
local group/meeting.  You can see that other local/regional/national 
Code4Lib meetups very similar to what you envision have already listed 
themselves on the wiki and make use of the wiki. Look under Local / 
Regional Groups on http://wiki.code4lib.org/index.php/Main_Page  .   
You are welcome to list your group on the wiki and use the wiki if you 
like.

As Jonathan pointed out, there is nobody to ask formal permission - just 
go ahead and do it. Personally, I would love to see some of these 
regional code4lib conferences/meetups/symposium/whatever happen around 
the world. Who knows, I might even show up to one :-).

Re: [CODE4LIB] Code4Lib Midwest? [conference call]

2010-03-10 Thread Eric Lease Morgan
Thank you for completing the Doodle poll, and based on that information, there 
will be a Code4Lib Midwest Regional Meeting conference call tomorrow 
(Thursday):

Who: anybody who wants to participate
   What: conference call
   When: Thursday, March 10 from 4 - 5 o'clock (Eastern time)
  Where: on the phone
Why: because planning is a good thing

If you want to participate, then you need to call the following telephone 
number and use the access code:

  * phone number - (866) 469-3239
  * access code - 214 555 48 

Let's try to keep the call to less then thirty minutes, and let's try to answer 
the following questions, in priority order:

  * Where will the regional meeting take place?
  * When will the regional meeting take place, and for how long?
  * What is a rough agenda of topic?

To help with decision-making, see the wiki where there is a list of possible 
attendees as well as a map of where they might be coming. [1]

[CODE4LIB] Any examples of using OAI-ORE for aggregation?

2010-03-10 Thread Joe Hourcle
Most of the examples I've seen of OAI-ORE seem to assume that you're 
ultimately interested in only one object within the resource map -- 
effectively, it's content negotiation.


Has anyone ever played with using ORE to point at an aggregation, with the 
expectation that the user will be interested in all parts, and 
automatically download them?


...

Let me give a concrete example:

A user searches for some data ... we find (x) number of records
that match their criteria, and they then weed the list down to 10
files of interest.

We then save this request as a Resource Map, as part of an OAIS
order.  I then want to be able to hand this off to a browser /
downloader / whatever to try to obtain the individual files.

Currently, I have something that can take the request, and create a 
tarball on the fly, but we have the unfortunate situation when some of the 
data is near-line and/or has to be regenerated -- I'm trying to find a 
good way to effectively fork the request into multiple smaller request, 
some of which I can service now, and some for which I can return an HTTP 
503 status (service unavailable) w/ a retry-after header.


...

Has anyone ever tried doing something like this?  Should I even be looking 
at ORE, or is there something that better fits with what I'm trying to do?


Thanks for any advice / insight you can give

-Joe

[CODE4LIB] Mobile emulators and sites to search

2010-03-10 Thread Jill Ellern
Code4Lib folks,
I was very impressed with the talks at the conference on Mobile Catalog 
searching and what to do a show and tell for my library staff.  However, Kim 
Griggs presentation doesn't appear to be up yet...:(  (I really liked your 
presentation!  Others did great too...) And I didn't take good enough notes 
because I was hoping to play that presentation to my library folks...

So we were wondering,  Is there a mobile emulator for the Android phone you 
would recommend?

Is there a list somewhere of sites that show off Mobile searching well that you 
would recommend?

Jill

Re: [CODE4LIB] Mobile emulators and sites to search

2010-03-10 Thread Doran, Michael D
Hi Jill,

 So we were wondering,  Is there a mobile emulator for the Android phone
 you would recommend?

Yes.  Your best bet is to use the emulator that comes with the Android Software 
Development Kit (SDK).  One of the other code4lib presentations included some 
screenshots showing some of the steps to download that SDK and create and start 
up an emulator instance [1].

 Is there a list somewhere of sites that show off Mobile searching well
 that you would recommend?

I would recommend taking a look at the M-Libraries wiki [2].

There are also some eclectic, but useful, links under the mobile tag in my 
delicious account [3].  The focus is on the development end, but there are some 
links to good mobile interfaces, too.
