This talk will discuss the challenges of merging a traditional archive with a socially constructed one. We will also present the first round of development and explain how we're using tools like Omeka, ContentDM, UC3 Merritt, djatoka, Kaltura, Google Maps, and Solr to lay the foundation for a robust and engaging site. Future directions, like the integration/development of better curation tools and what we hope to learn from opening the archive to contributions from a large community of fans, will also be discussed.
== Library News - A gathering place for library and tech news, and more ==
* Matt Phillips, Harvard Library Innovation Lab,
[ Library News] is gathering place for people to share and discuss news from the technology and library worlds. Think [ Hacker News], but for library dorks instead of startup dorks.
Library News is more than a news/discussion site, it analyzes submitted links and shares its observations. The most basic form of sharing occurs via an OPML file: Library News tracks submitted blog entries and tallies up the most popular. This most popular list is exposed as a browsable list and as an OPML download (This OPML file can be loaded directly into an RSS reader and be used as a "starter pack" of popular blogs in the library and tech spaces).
My rough talk outline:
* Demo Library News
* Present how Library News goes beyond normal discussion sites (the tools that allow to explore submitted links)
* Discuss where Library News fits with the current library news ecosystem
