Re: [CODE4LIB] Web Filter Recomendations

2014-04-07 Thread Ryan Eby
For filtering specific things squid will do it plus give you some caching to 
boot.  By specific things I mean you can use it to block certain domains or 
content types. There are blacklists out there for advertising domains and the 
like that you can plug and play. We’ve done this in the past with staff IPs 
which actually made a rather large difference in bandwidth and CPU/Mem since a 
lot of advertisements can be flash or heavier based.

For content filtering (porn, gambling, etc) an open-source option is 
Dansguardian which we offer to patrons here. Default install has some basic 
keywords defined which work fine and you can tweak as needed. We just use the 
default config as we offer both filtered and unfiltered to patrons so don’t 
care as much what gets through compared to those with requirements. 
Dansguardian can also put traffic out through squid to get cacheing as well. 
2.8.x.x+ support user groups though I haven’t used that feature.

http://dansguardian.org/

Both of the above work as transparent proxies and you can either use a router 
level redirect (iptables, etc) or set it up in the browser as a proxy.

Re: [CODE4LIB] EZProxy changes / alternatives ?

2014-01-31 Thread Ryan Eby
There was actually a breakout in 2011? Code4lib discussing Apache and using it 
as a proxy. I believe Terry Reese and Jeremy Frumkin, then from Oregon?, were 
the ones leading it. There was lots of interest but I’m not sure if anything 
took off or if they have documentation somewhere of how far they got. I 
remember it being about getting something a consortia of libraries could use 
together so may have been more complex requirements than what is looked for 
here.

Re: [CODE4LIB] desk scheduling software?

2013-09-10 Thread Ryan Eby
I'm not directly involved with scheduling thankfully, but we have had
quite a few systems including excel, calendars, etc.

One we are trying now is https://www.schedulesource.com/

It is definitely not polished and suffers from feature bloat but the
bloat is kind of what people wanted to try. It lets people enter their
availability and preferences and also allows you to set up rules (how
many shifts/hours/weekends certain labor groups can do, etc). It will
then autofill schedules for you which you can then manually tweak.
Also allows individuals to trade shifts within the rules you set up.
About a million other features though after the initial learning it
was easy for people to ignore everything else and get used to their
workflow.

I'm sure there are better things out there depending on your
requirements but for our schedulers initial requirements this has
worked better than previous systems at least.

Re: [CODE4LIB] Digital collection backups

2013-01-11 Thread Ryan Eby
As Aaron alludes to your decision should base off your real needs and they
might not be exclusive.

LOCKSS/MetaArchive might be worth the money if it is the community archival
aspect you are going for. Depending on your institution being a participant
might make political/mission sense regardless of the storage needs and it
could just be a specific collection that makes sense.

Glacier is a great choice if you are looking for spreading a backup across
regions. S3 similarly if you also want to benefit from CloudFront (the CDN
setup) to take load off your institutions server (you can now use
cloudfront off your own origin server as well). Depending on your bandwidth
this might be worth the money regardless of LOCKSS participation (which can
be more dark). Amazon also tends to be dropping prices over time vs raising
but as any outsource you have to plan that it might not exist in the
future. Also look more at Glacier prices in terms of checking your data for
consistency. There have been a few papers on the costs of making sure
Amazon really has the proper data depending on how often your requirements
want you to check.

Another option if you are just looking for more geo placement is finding an
institution or service provider that will colocate. There may be another
small institution that would love to shove a cheap box with hard drives on
your network in exchange for the same. Not as involved/formal as LOCKSS but
gives you something you control to satisfy your requirements. It could also
be as low tech as shipping SSDs to another institution who then runs some
bagit checksums on the drive, etc.

All of the above should be scriptable in your workflow. Just need to decide
what you really want out of it.

 LOCKSS has worked well for us so far, in part because supporting
 community-based solutions is important to us.  As you point out, however,
 Glacier is an attractive alternative, especially for institutions that may
 be more interested in low-cost, low-throughput storage and less concerned
 about entrusting their content to a commercial outfit or having to pay
 extra to get it back out.  As with most things, you pay your money--more or

 Good luck with whatever solution(s) you decide on.  They need not be

There's really two reactions in here. One about NoSQL and the other
about your colleague.

As for NoSQL i would be on the side that the ecosystem is here to stay
although individual projects may or may not take off/evolve. The best
description I've seen about nosql as a whole is choice[1]. Not
having to shove everything in a similar style database for every
project and making the database fit the data/use. Theres a large
number of projects now, each with their own priorities and the
trade-offs they've made to reach them. Some care about consistency,
others eventual consistency is good enough and others go as far as
distributed transactions over nodes. Some do lazy writes to disk,
others not. How you query your data also varies quite a bit with
sql-like, map/reduce, hadoop, etc.

From your brief description it sounds like quite a few projects could
fit the bill, including rdbms-types, and which one you want would
probably depend on what you think you might do in the future. If you
foresee yourself having lots of fields that might only cover certain
subsets of the dataset then couchdb or the like are probably worth
looking at.

As for the colleague, I guess the question is why? If it is because of
trendiness then Bwahahahah!!! might be the best answer. But I'm
guessing they've thought about the data and what benefits they would
get out of the backend.

Re: [CODE4LIB] ILS short list

2010-04-08 Thread Ryan Eby
It would probably be worth putting your findings on the code4lib wiki
if you end up getting very far.

I had started a list awhile ago but never got around to getting more
info/completing it. Here's what I have so far based on talking with
people. The information may be out of date:

Evergreen and Koha both have database access and various API's. Not
sure on the hosted liblime koha.

Voyager
*Export
Built in. Can export Marc with bib, holdings and authorities records,
though marc is often mangled (from person i talked to).
*Database Access
Built in. Uses Oracle and also provides entity-relationship diagrams
and some pre-build views to help in development. Believe the oracle
license is also included in the base price. Access is read-only.
*API's and Web Services
Built in. z39 access, however with SQL access you could likely build
the API you need.

Unicorn
* Export
Built in. MARC21 or flat file formats. Unicode support is available as an extra.
* Database Access
Mixed. No access to the embedded Informix database by default; API
training is necessary for read-only access. Oracle is an extra option,
but that only gives you a read-only license. For write access, you
need a full Oracle license. SQL schema is supplied if you purchase API
training.
* API's and Web Services
Mixed. Z39.50 is offered (not sure if it's an extra). API access is
an extra - basically you pay for docs of Unix-like commands and the
ability to pay for API support if you screw up. API training also
gives you some access to the client/server wire protocol so you can
roll your own. No Web services. Utterly unusable XML API (it basically
wraps the wire protocol with no abstraction).

Innovative
* Export
Built In. Can dump Marc or CSV files of specific field data
* Database Access
Extra. There is a Oracle option with an additional cost with the
default being a proprietary database without access. From what I've
heard the Oracle tables are not documented overly well. There also
appears to be mysql used for some data as well.
*API's and Web Services
Extra. Z39 is offered as a product. There used to be an XML server but
this appears to have been discontinued. There appears to be more web
services in the works though they also appear to be additional
products. XRecord is built in but doesn't easily allow access to
attached items given a bib

  There *are* immigration sites for both the U.S. and Canada that can provide

 I have taken the 1000 Island Bridge (incredibly scenic for those that

Re: [CODE4LIB] code4lib.org hosting

2007-08-02 Thread Ryan Eby
There's too many argument off-shoots so I'll just sum up my overly
personal opinions here.

* I agree with Ross and Co. about their concerns. When I offered AADL
as a possibility I was doing more so for the short term to get a site
up and running at least until the conference. Long-term I think would
require some binding agreement to make it palatable at any
institution, even a university. I think AADL, OSU, etc would all be
stop-gaps at the most in the short-term.

* I think in the long-run it would make sense to either revisit the
idea of non-profit status or find a paid colo host and include the
cost either in the yearly conference or by donations. I think this
thread shows that there needs to be something resembling governance.
Getting someone to admin the box would be another challenge.

* I didn't argue that much in channel truthfully because I didn't have
an alternative to bring to the table which I thought was workable. It
sounds like dchud has more experiences to give input on.

* Hosting at a vendor that may be criticized, I think is an obviously
not great idea. Which is another concern for any library that offers.
This is why I don't believe aadl would not be a long-term solution as
stands and I'm weary of others. I think many in the community see it
as a source of trustful information and might see sponsorship or
hosting as a possible compromise of that trust.

* In the end I think this is more a problem with what people think of
the community, their responsibilities in the community and the future
of code4lib then a simple hosting problem. Democracies seem to involve
more work.

* The core system was pretty much up to date on anvil, the web apps
mostly weren't as can be expected with independent users. Any proposal
should probably include details and who is responsible for software
upgrades such as the code4lib site and what is expected.

I'm game for whatever the community decides.

Re: [CODE4LIB] Code4Lib journal idea revival?

2007-04-11 Thread Ryan Eby

Well I don't think there was any real interest in having a journal on
the level of an actual publisher. It seemed more on the alignment of
something like First Monday but with even less structure/schedule.

From what I remember, which may be wrong, it was more of a collection

of community output and not a competitor to any existing items. It
would be more informal like the anthology project, though I could see
some people then taking their work and republishing it elsewhere more
formally.

Again maybe I'm mistaken but I don't think anyone was planning on
actually starting a full-fledged journal on Elsevier or the like. Just
expanding already great blog posts or internal papers into something
that could benefit the community. I think it was discussed on this
list so the archives should probably share more.

I thought there was a page on the wiki but can't find it now.

Re: [CODE4LIB] Unicode from MySQL display problem

2007-04-10 Thread Ryan Eby

Don't have experience but a search showed that you may have to set-up
your mysql connection from PHP to use utf8 as php isn't good with
unicode. They recommended this:

$result = mysql_query('SET NAMES utf8;');
$result = mysql_query('SET CHARACTER_SET utf8;');

You can apparently also set up your mysql to default all connections
to utf8. Here was where I found it:

[CODE4LIB] Code4Lib 2007 Podcast and More

2007-04-03 Thread Ryan Eby

Well I was in the process of doing a nice metadata rich ATOM feed but
then realized people have waited long enough. Took 20 minutes but here
is an Odeo podcast for the Code4Lib 2007 presentations. Lightning

http://odeo.com/channel/368053/view

Odeo has the benefit that you can embed the audio with flash as well.
I added the descriptions so iTunes should pick everything up. Let me
know if anything is wrong.

Also it came up that it would be nice to have the slides in the video
cast. I did the next best thing and embedded SlideShare versions on
the presentation pages that had powerpoints or PDFs. If your screen is
large enough you should be able to play the Google video and move
yourself through the slides.

same consortium or provincial/state system; two neighbouring public
systems that let people from one borrow at the other; academic libraries
that want to make it easy for visiting profs and grad students to get
temporary access to online resources; etc.

Say I live in Lower Mowat but one day I'm in Upper Mowat, in the next

library systems are separate but share their resources.  I pop into the

the Upper Mowat system recognizes where I'm from and gives me access to

 Can anyone recommend something to this end? I'm willing to spend a

  Personally, I think it's a great idea. I agree on not wishing to
  pressure speakers and it being completely opt-in. As for storage, I
  would be happy to host the videos on a GPLS web server, if needed.
 
  Also, for the record, I am planning on attending the conference for as
  long as circumstances allow (no baby yet!). :)

  videotaped if they're not comfortable with it, so I only plan on
  taping a session if the presenter opts in ahead of time. I haven't
  figured out anything along the lines of subsequent storage and
  distribution of this content post-conference, either... it's just a
  last-minute idea that might make sense for those who were unable to
  attend this year (Brad, Peter, and undoubtedly many others). For the
  presenters, it might be useful for CV / whuffie credits, too.
 
  Any thoughts? Is this a horrible idea?

Re: [CODE4LIB] Server names at libraries

2006-10-27 Thread Ryan Eby

I can't remember who told me or where I read it but some place is
using the periodic table with the elements matching the IP of the
machine. I think it might be LOC but I'm not for sure. So:

10.1.1.1 would be H
10.1.1.2 would be He
etc

Re: [CODE4LIB] [Web4lib] Access 2006 presentations podcasts available

2006-10-23 Thread Ryan Eby

Since I couldn't find a podcast feed I went ahead and created one. You
can find it here:

http://odeo.com/channel/140930/view

If it seems like there are less presentations it is because many of
the ones listed on the site are actually part of one audio file, which
I combined in a single post/download. The podcast links to the audio
on the original site.

Re: [CODE4LIB] worldcat

2006-08-22 Thread Ryan Eby

I don't think they have a public one but there is one if your
institution has Firstsearch.

http://www.oclc.org/support/documentation/firstsearch/z3950/fs_z39_config_guide/default.htm

The production server provides access to all the databases available
and requires a valid FirstSearch authorization.

Is there a public Z39.50/SRU/SRW/Web Services interface to WorldCat

I would like to create a simple search engine to query Other's
books, and *Cat seems like a great candidate.

Inquiring minds would like to know.

Re: [CODE4LIB] blocked IRC

2006-02-28 Thread Ryan Eby
I had this problem too at the library. Luckily I was able to pull an
IP that had a gateway that didn't block it. There's quite a few IRC
CGI programs set-up around the web that will let you connect via a web
browser. A google search will find you some.
