homegrown OpenURL

If you are developing (or plan to develop) your own OpenURL link resolver, there is a listserv for you.

If you are developing (or plan to develop) your own OpenURL link resolver, John Weible of University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign has created a listserv for you.

A small but growing number of libraries have already or are now developing non commercial link resolving solutions with OpenURL at the core. These libraries need a peer support group for the exchange of ideas and solutions. Specific information about how to construct deep linking URLs for a particular target site is likely to be a frequent topic. I expect that the exchange of open source software tools related to link resolution will also be a frequent topic.

So, if you are involved in the development or maintenance of an open source or “homegrown” OpenURL link resolver at your library or institution or interested in doing so, this list is available for you.

Wil Wheaton has a weblog. He started it a few years ago after creating his first website to remind the world that he does still exist and isn’t just a washed-up former child actor. He’s 30 years old, married, and has some kids. Most importantly, he wants the world to know that he’s more than just some “space-suited, enterprising young ensign” or a “sweet, vulnerable little dead body seeker.” Right now, I’m reading it just because I can’t believe he would actually learn web design and coding and create his own website, and it is kind of fascinating.
