XML well-formedness and validity checks can't find badly encoded characters either -- char data that claims to be one encoding but is really another, or that has been double-encoded and now means something different than intended. There's really no way to catch that but heuristics. All of

I'm making headway on my MARC records, but only through the use of brute force. I used wget to retrieve the MARC records (as well as associated PDF and text files) from the Internet Archive. I know IA has some bad marc records (and also records w/ bad encoding) from my experience with

To a greater degree, I think libraries ought to be putting into practice the principles of our profession against public domain works. Collection. Preservation. Organization. Dissemination. Take EEBO (Early English Books Online), for example. Why couldn't the library community create

There is a lot of redundant data in MARC that is an encoded form of something that elsewhere is expressed as text -- somewhat controlled text, but text Much of this redundant input (think of the time!) could be eliminated if we quit keying text strings but allowed the display to

Nice, Jeff. I really like the simplified VIAF RDF. In particular I like how you've modeled the deprecation of resources. Are you planning to use a 301, e.g. http://viaf.org/viaf/77390479/ - http://viaf.org/viaf/77390479 ? //Ed On Mon, Apr 11, 2011 at 3:18 PM, Young,Jeff (OR) jyo...@oclc.org

[CODE4LIB] Listserv help desperately needed!

When an OCLC staff member sends a message to this list (and possibly all lists) the rest of us in the company don't see the message. Worse yet, the company email system rejects the email to us and the sending listserv eventually gets tired of that and unsubscribes us from the list. We can't

It's still worth chatting with the email admin because it could also uncover other problems you may or may not be aware of. As has already been suggested, whitelisting can solve the immediate problem, but if your system is tossing emails because it thinks the headers are forged, it's possible

I haven't seen this problem, but I guess I haven't sent a message to the list recently. We'll see what happens when this goes out. We've been having a similar problem with other listserv lists (autocat and oclc-cat) since the beginning of March. We just stopped getting mail from these lists

Thanks Ed. Note that the URI without the trailing slash does a 303 (Linked Data) redirect to the URI with the slash. Doing a 301 back would create a redirect loop. VIAF uses the trailing slash URI to support the Linked Data Cool URIs pattern called 303 URIs forwarding to One Generic Document
