XISBN experimental use

Lorcan

XISBN being used in UKOLN’s demonstrator OpenURL application. Andy Powell writes:

This looks pretty interesting. It uses knowledge of WorldCat and the IFLA Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records (FRBR) model to work up from any given ISBN to the ‘work’, then back down to other ‘expressions’/’manifestations’ of the same work. I.e. give it an ISBN, and it returns a list of associated ISBNs. I’ve incorporated this Web service into OpenResolver, UKOLN’s demonstrator OpenURL resolver. To try it, go to the sample reading list page at:

The technology career ladder

Library leaders should be drawn from across the organization. Any idea that technology leaders are overly specialised or too distant from general library work is outmoded and counter-productive.
