Second OCLC Research Software Contest

Win some cash and a trip to Dublin Ohio.
OCLC Research is once again celebrating libraries and their heritage of technological innovation by sponsoring a software contest to encourage innovation in the use of web-based services for libraries.


  • $2,500
  • Visit OCLC Online Computer Library Center Inc., in Dublin, Ohio
The challenge

The contest challenge is to use an OCLC resource to create a Web service that does something interesting, innovative, and useful to libraries.

Some potential resources are listed below. At a minimum, contest entries must make use of one of the OCLC resources. After that, all others are optional.

Part of your job is to convince us why your service is interesting and why it will help libraries and/or library users; other than that, you're free to implement whatever strikes your fancy.

You must bring up a working prototype.
