D-Lib Magazine

The May/June 2008 issue of D-Lib Magazine is now available.

Some articles of interest include:
  • PREMIS With a Fresh Coat of Paint: Highlights from the Revision of the PREMIS Data Dictionary for Preservation Metadata Brian F. Lavoie, OCLC Online Computer Library Center
  • Adding Value to the Library Catalog by Implementing a Recommendation System Michael Moennich and Marcus Spiering, Karlsruhe University Library
I found the one on the recommendation system interesting. They are selling the service as an add-on to the OPAC. LibraryThing for Libraries is doing the same with their data. Syndantics has been doing this for quite some time with cover images and reviews. Seems to be a trend here, 2nd party additions to the OPAC supplying services based on data collected elsewhere. In the article world, there was some research done collecting OpenURL data to rate papers.
