10:00 - 10:10 - Welcome, Logistics, Overview of the Day, Roy Tennant, OCLC Research
10:10 - 10:30 - WikipeDPLA & Writing a Chrome Extension - Eric Phetteplace, California College of the Arts I'll discuss my work writing a Chrome extension version of my WikipeDPLA user script which inserts results from the DPLA API into Wikipedia pages. I'll talk about the process of writing a browser extension: the advantages, disadvantages, available APIs, and structure. I can also discuss more generally the DPLA API and how the user script works, plus why I would want to convert it into a browser extension.
10:35 - 10:55 - Visualizing DSpace SOLR Statistics - Aaron Collier, California State University Chancellors Office I'll discuss the work I am doing extracting usage statistics from the DSpace SOLR stats structure for reporting and visualization within our Multi-tenant instance, hosting most of the CSU library repositories. While this is a work in progress, I'll talk about the process of extracting and understanding what is being stored in SOLR and how I am interpreting and reporting those results.
10:55 - 11:15 - Break [Sign up for a lightning talk or suggest a breakout session]
11:15 - 11:35 - Asynchronous in-place descriptive metadata editing using Fedora, Solr, and a Blacklight based website - Peter Mangiafico, Stanford University A discussion on how we handle web based in-place descriptive metadata editing in a Blacklight based website, the Revs Digital Library. The technique allows users to edit metadata and see immediate results, while caching the edits to be applied asynchronously in batch mode against Stanford's Fedora based digital repository (including versioning of changes). We also provide auto-complete suggestions for certain fields from a controlled vocabulary.
