Blogging the Catalog

Library 2.0 in the Real World by Jenny Levine points to some very interesting work.
The prototype is built on the WordPress open source, blogging platform, which gives it some very interesting features. For example, every record in the catalog gets its own page, which means it has its own static, permanet link (also known as a "permalink") that can be indexed by non-library search engines such as Google and Yahoo, as well as tracking of new items in engines like Technorati. Because it's blogging software, each record also offers comments, trackbacks, and (yes, believe it) tags.
