XML

An interesting article, How Does XML Help Libraries? by Kyle Banerjee from the latest Computers in Libraries
Many technological innovations relating to libraries have been made over the past decade, but few have generated as much excitement as XML. While many new technologies seem more promising before they are implemented than they are afterward (remember how Java was going to make platform-independent software available everywhere, and Z39.50 was going to let us find and obtain materials stored in libraries around the globe so much more quickly?), XML is already transforming how information is managed and delivered.
