Anna,

Have you taken a look at my recent issue of Library Technology Reports: 
  Opening up Library Systems through Web Services and SOA: Hype or Reality?
  
http://www.alatechsource.org/library-technology-reports/opening-up-library-systems-through-web-services-and-soa-hype-or-reality

One component of this report are data about each of the major systems that 
describe the API's that they provide to libraries for accessing and 
manipulating internal data and functionality.

I hope this helps.

Subject: [CODE4LIB] ILS short list

I am looking to find or create a shortlist of ILSes, open or 
proprietary, that provide API access to bibliographic and item-level 
data.  I am really only looking for ILSes that are used by academic 
libraries.

Do you know of any resources that might be helpful?  I started with 
Marshall Breeding's 2009 Perceptions report, but it doesn't include much 
information about a given ILS.

Or, do you use such an ILS in your library?

So far my list is: Evergreen

Thank you!!

RE:  Next-generation policy for WorldCat records-open for community
review

DATE: April 7, 2010



The OCLC Record Use Policy Council members have been working for the past
few months to develop the next generation of a WorldCat use policy, and we
are pleased to announce that the draft document, WorldCat Rights and
Responsibilities for the OCLC Cooperative 
http://www.oclc.org/worldcat/catalog/policy/default.htm , is open for
community review.



This Council, convened by the OCLC Board of Trustees last September, has
produced a new draft document that incorporates many suggestions raised by
the community over the past year. For example, rather than using legal
language, we have drafted the new policy as a code of good practices,
intended to outline the rights and responsibilities of OCLC members with
regard to the use of WorldCat records.



We intend for this document to help inform the decision-making process for
member library leaders as they seek to innovate around the shared resource
that is WorldCat. We have sought to encourage the widespread use of WorldCat
data while also supporting the viability and utility of WorldCat and the
OCLC network of services.



The draft policy is not final. Between now and the end of May, we very much
want your feedback. We hope you will take the time to review the draft
policy carefully, and let us know your thoughts. You can post comments to
the community forum http://community.oclc.org/recorduse , send an e-mail
with your thoughts to record...@oclc.org mailto:record...@oclc.org , or
register to attend a webinar 
http://www.oclc.org/worldcat/catalog/policy/council/default.htm  where you
can ask questions and submit feedback to members of the Record Use Policy
Council. We will continue to add content to the accompanying FAQ 
http://www.oclc.org/worldcat/catalog/policy/questions/default.htm  as we
get more questions from the community review process.



We plan to send a revised version of the draft policy to the OCLC Board of
Trustees at the end of May for final review and approval. We anticipate that
a final document will be published mid-calendar year 2010.



Many thanks are due to all the members and librarians who commented over the
past year and whose feedback helped us formulate this new document. We would
especially like to thank the members of the Record Use Policy Council:

[CODE4LIB] Next-generation policy for WorldCat records—open for community review

2010-04-07 Thread Roy Tennant
This list has exhibited interest in the revision of the OCLC Guidelines on
the Use and Transfer of WorldCat Records that happened a while back, and the
controversy that led to its withdrawal and the creation of an entirely new
process to produce another draft. Therefore, I’m pleased to let you know
that earlier today the OCLC Record Use Policy Council, made up of OCLC
members and two OCLC staff members (list below), notified the membership
that the new draft policy is available for review and feedback. I’m certain
you will find that it differs in some fairly dramatic ways from the previous
revision attempt, and reflects both the rights and responsibilities of OCLC
member libraries in creating and maintaining a vital and effective metadata
aggregation and the important services that can be built upon it.

Please read the draft policy and feel free to send your comments or
questions to the Council at record...@oclc.org. Thanks,
Roy

How do these jobs end up on your blog again? It seems like you have a

[CODE4LIB] Code4Lib North planning continues

2010-04-07 Thread William Denton

Hi,

A quick note to anyone who's interested in Code4Lib North (6-7 May in 
Kingston, Ontario) and isn't on the mailing list for it:


http://wiki.code4lib.org/index.php/North

Details about the mailing list are there.  Planning's going on and anyone 
who's interested in giving a talk should drop a note and add themselves on 
the wiki page.


Discussion of a possible hackfest/something on the Thursday continues, but 
it seems like most people will be solidly there for just Friday.


Bill

Kind of bummed that you had to create a new mailing list, but whatever
I guess ...

It seemed like the right thing to do.  We can always drop it.  What's the 
limit on discussion of local events on the list?  I guess it hasn't been 
reached yet.  When will people get fed up, or start mass deleting?


That said, if anyone wants to talk about it here, by all means, go ahead. 
The more the merrier.


So far there are just three people with ideas for talks (me, Walter Lewis, 
Art Rhyno).  Have the other local chapters found it works well to have 
more time for informal stuff, or lightning talks, or Ask Anything like I 
see NYC is doing?  Sometimes with a smaller group people don't talk so 
much, but sometimes they do.

I added mytpl.ca (alluringly entitled Location-aware Mobile Search).  I 
figure it could be a good trailer for the forthcoming journal article.  ;-)

The thing that bums me out is that this discussion list was largely
created because there were all these discussions going on in niches
like xml4lib, web4lib, perl4lib, php4lib, oss4lib, etc ... and not
enough conversation about computing and libraries and
cross-fertilization between projects/environments.  Now we're seeing
the code4lib discussion list itself fragment into code4libmdc,
code4lib-north, code4libnyc, code4lib-northwest, etc.

I guess an argument could be made that the conversations going on in
this sublists would overwhelm code4lib proper with all sorts of local
noise. But I think ideally we should have crossed that bridge when we
came to it. I think if folks on code4lib saw what was going on in
different locales it would inspire people to do stuff where they are
too.

I guess I'm  with Ed with this. These fractured lists don't help get  
input from a wider range of people and even if I wouldn't go to  
c4lPluto I'd still like to know about it. Is hitting a delete button  
that big of deal anymore? If so, I don't see the point of signing up  
for email discussion lists - or at least if you do and volume is an  
issue, modern email clients have filters or free email accounts that  
can br used specifically for email lists can be created. Butaybe  
that's just me and edsu.
