WorldCat.org, catalogue en ligne d’OCLC, propose un lien vers WorldCat Identities. Ce dernier donne accès à des profils d’auteurs ou de sociétés : nombre de titres publiés, langue de publication, rôle, « tag cloud »…
Par ailleurs, WorldCat offre un lien vers le service de fourniture de documents de la British Library, British Library Direct.
A new Forrester report by Erica Driver and Ron Rogowski suggests that rich Internet applications (RIAs) may usurp Microsoft Office and enterprise portals as the front-end UIs for « decision-makers and task-oriented workers ». The phrase Forrester uses for this front end is « Information Workplaces (IWs) ».
Rich Internet applications (RIA) are Web applications that have the features and functionality of traditional desktop applications. RIAs typically transfer the processing necessary for the user interface to the Web client but keep the bulk of the data (i.e., maintaining the state of the program, the data etc) back on the application server.
Amazon employee: « We sold more books today that didn’t sell at all yesterday than we sold today of all the books that did sell yesterday. »
It is often forgotten that money is to be made by leveraging the collective long tail, however, making money while being part of the long tail is very difficult. Specifically, in the blogosphere, the vast majority of blogs have very few readers. It is not realistic to expect these blogs to make money.
The first major project of Universal Library is the Million
Book Digital Library project. Typical large high-school libraries
house fewer than 30,000 volumes. Most libraries in the world
have less than a million volumes. The total number of different
titles indexed in OCLC’s WorldCat is about 48 million. One million
books, therefore, is more than the holdings of most high-schools,
and is equivalent to the libraries at many universities and
represents a useful fraction of all available books.
The Digital Assets Repository (DAR) is a system developed at the Bibliotheca Alexandrina,
the Library of Alexandria, to create and maintain the digital library collections.
DAR acts as a repository for all types of digital material preserving and archiving
digital media, and providing public access to digitized collections through web-based
search and browsing facilities. The goal of this project is building a digital resources
repository by supporting the creation, use, and preservation of varieties of digital
resources as well as the development of management tools. These tools help the library
to preserve, manage and share digital assets. The system is based on evolving standards
for easy integration with web-based interoperable digital libraries.
« Avec mon équipe, nous sommes désorientés et tristes, dit Isabelle Walet, nous nous investissions beaucoup dans les relations avec les habitants et, en une nuit, ce service public a entièrement disparu. »
