New Cataloging Weblog

Cataloging thoughts is a new weblog devoted to cataloging issues.

LPI on Flickr

Not cataloging, but something I find exciting, the LPI Library is now placing imagery on Flickr. Our first collection is planetary size comparisons, how a basin compares to Arizona or a crater to Los Angeles. More collections will follow.

OLAC Conference

The next OLAC conference will be held October 14-17, 2010 in Macon, Georgia.

The Program Committee has created a blog for potential attendees to discuss the conference.

We invite you to share your ideas, and to take the breakout session interest survey.

From an e-mail on OLAC-L.

Blacklight

A new version of Blacklight is available.
Blacklight is a free and open source ruby-on-rails based discovery interface (a.k.a. “next-generation catalog”) especially optimized for heterogeneous collections. You can use it as a library catalog, as a front end for a digital repository, or as a single-search interface to aggregate digital content that would otherwise be siloed.
