Open Source Electronic Resource Management System: A Collaborative Implementation

,----[ Quote ]
| Librarians and strategists at Simon Fraser 
| University (SFU) have collaborated with a 
| team of middle-sized libraries to expand 
| the open-source CUFTS Researcher suite of 
| tools to include an Electronic Resources 
| Management (ERM) system. This paper focuses 
| on: the development and implementation of 
| the CUFTS ERM; interoperability between 
| CUFTS ERM and integrated library systems 
| (Millennium); impact of the ERM on 
| acquisitions, serials, and collections 
| workflows and staffing at SFU Library and 
| the University of Prince Edward Island 
| (UPEI) Library.

Portland Open Source promoter created Google map after bomb exploded

| Sitting in a restaurant, the designer and 
| organizer of an upcoming Open Source 
| conference saw tweets flashing on his 
| screen. Within five minutes, the hashtag 
| #pdxboom emerged. And so, Beels waded in, 
| creating a Google map for people to mark 
| where they were when they heard the bomb 
| and how it sounded.


Itâs Baseball Season

,----[ Quote ]
| With the official start of the 2010 Major 
| League Baseball season just days away, I 
| thought it would be a great time to talk 
| about two baseball related open source 
| projects that I have on GitHub.  These 
| projects are Gameday API, and Baseball 
| Tracker.  Gameday API is a Ruby API that 
| makes it easy for you to get live MLB 
| statistics direct from the MLB servers that 
| power their own Gameday application. 

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
