OCLC's Third Research Software Contest

News from OCLC.
I'm pleased to announce that OCLC has opened its Third Research Software Contest.

The prize is $2,500 and an expenses-paid visit to OCLC Research in Dublin, Ohio to discuss your contest entry and related issues and ideas with scientists, developers, and other staff.

We will be assembling a panel of judges to judge submissions based on these criteria:

  • Value to libraries, archives or museums
  • Use of OCLC services or data
  • Originality
  • Clean architecture and design
Deadline for entry is June 30, 2009 and the winner will be announced no later than July 31, 2009. Please see the web site for details, Roy
