Hi Jason,
I can answer the first question. Since we launched it in Nov/2013 we had
278 assignments scheduled through the system.
Feel free to contact me if you need any other information.

 One of our librarians came across K-State's Assignment Planner

 which is based on Minnesota/Minitex's

 We're curious to hear:
   1. some anecdotes as to how much use this kind of service gets and
   2. if there are worthy alternatives (free or fee)?

 Contact me directly if you prefer.

 Thanks,

Re: [CODE4LIB] code4lib 2013 location

There seems to be 12 android apps for chicago transit.
http://www.transitchicago.com/apps/#android

Can a local please recommend an app that works the best out of all 12?

 Hello all,

 I'm responding to this older thread to point you to a travel logistics page
 on the Code4Lib wiki for the conference:
 http://wiki.code4lib.org/index.php/2013_travel

 We'll add further info to this page as needed.  I hope this helps with
 conference navigation!

 Best,

  Hi all,
 
  Apparently code4lib 2013 is going to be held at the UIC Forum
 
http://www.uic.edu/depts/uicforum/
 
  I assumed it would be at the conference hotel. This is just a note so
  that others do not make the same assumption, since nowhere in the
  information about the conference is the location made clear.
 
  Since the conference hotel is 1 mile from the venue, I assume
  transportation will be available.

Re: [CODE4LIB] Bootstrap

You mean Twitter Bootstrap?
If so I have used it in few projects and it gets the job done. Nice and
clean.

 Hi Everyone,
 Has anyone try to use Bootstrap for web develop before? How is the
 framework? Does it works well?

Re: [CODE4LIB] Wikis

Confluence is free for non-profits, but for academics they charge a reduced
fee.

If you just want a basic wiki mediawiki would work, but for more elaborated
access control (and other features) Confluence would be better.

 You might want to look at Atlasssian Confluence. They offer free

  There are a plethora of options for wiki software. Does anyone have any
  recommendations for a platform that's easy-to-use and has a low-learning
  curve for users? I'm thinking of starting a wiki for internal best
  practices, etc. and wondered what people who've done the same had success
  with.

Re: [CODE4LIB] Availability of data-enabled temporary SIM cards

2011-12-08 Thread Dhanushka Samarakoon
This is the best non-contract data plan I have seen so far.
5GB for $30 on T-mobile
http://www.walmart.com/ip/Tmobile-30-Wireless-Airtime-Card/15443357

A SIM card should be around $7

 Hi all,

 Sorry for being semi-off-topic, but obviously you're the right bunch of
 people to know this...

 We're a bunch of Danes visiting the Code4Lib conference in Seattle. But
 the prospect of a full week being offline on my trusted Android phone is
 scary. And the price of international data roaming is simply scary.

 So I was wondering if any US carriers are selling data-enabled SIM cards,
 at a price that would be reasonable for a week's usage, and which are also
 available for visiting tourists?

 Any input welcome. Thanks.

 Best,

Re: [CODE4LIB] A to Z lists

Hi Michele,
We created one using wordpress (which is not yet live)
If you are interested in that route, I'll be happy to share the details with
you.

 Hi Code4Lib-ers,

 I want to chime in and say that I, too, enjoyed the streaming archive from
 the conference.

 I also have a question: my library has a horribly antiquated A to Z list of
 databases and online resources (it's based in Access). We'd like to do
 something that looks more modern and is far more user friendly. I found a
 great article in the Code4Lib journal (issue 12, by Danielle Rosenthal 
 Mario Bernado) about building a searchable A to Z list using Drupal. I'm
 also wondering what other institutions have done as far as in-house
 solutions. I know there're products we could buy, but, like everyone else,
 we don't have much money at the moment.

 Thanks for any info or advice!

If search is your priority, then I think solr would be a better option.
