   Corrado, Edward A., and Kathryn A.  Frederick. "[6]Free and Open Source

   Options for Creating Database-Driven Subject Guides"  [7]Code4Lib

   Journal  (2)(24 March 2008)(http://journal.code4lib.org/articles/47). -

   A common strategy to help library users find the information they seek

   is to create web pages focused on library resources in broad topic

   areas. The most efficient way to create and maintain such pages is by

   using a database. This article provides a survey of free and open

   source software options for creating and maintaining database-driven

   subject pages. Applications highlighted include SubjectsPlus, LibData,

   Research Guide, and Library Course Builder. Social bookmarking sites,

   course management systems, blogs, and wikis are also mentioned as

   options. - [8]RT

 

   DeRidder, Jody L. "[9]Googlizing a Digital library"  [10]Code4Lib

   Journal  (2)(24 March 2008)(http://journal.code4lib.org/articles/43). -

   This article describes how one institution dramatically increased

   access to their digital library materials by exposing information about

   these items to web crawlers. Called the "deep web" because of its

   opaque nature to web crawlers, content hidden behind database walls can

   be exposed to crawlers in various ways. DeRidder discusses these

   options and describes their particular strategy. A lengthy bibliography

   and list of helpful links will assist those who wish to do the same. -

   Freeland, Chris, Martin  Kalfatovic, and Jay  Paige, et.

   al."[12]Geocoding LCSH in the Biodiversity Heritage Library"

   [13]Code4Lib Journal  (24 March

   2008)(http://journal.code4lib.org/articles/52). - This article is an

   interesting description of using Library of Congress Subject Headings

   (LCSH), geographical coordinates, and the Google Maps Application

   Program Interface (API) to create new methods of information discovery

   in the [14]Biodiversity Heritage Library. Despite the "wow" factor of

   using a Google Maps interface to discover items in the library, there

   are several problems this project surfaced. One is the lack of data --

   not every item that refers to a geographic location has been coded as

   such. Also, it is not always helpful to plot something that refers to

   an entire continent as a point somewhere in the middle of that

   continent. But this is interesting work and it demonstrates potentially

   useful directions for using our existing data in new ways to enhance

   retrieval. - [15]RT

   International Data Corp,

   2008.(http://www.emc.com/collateral/analyst-reports/diverse-exploding-d

   igital-universe.pdf). - In 2007, the digital universe held 281 billion

   gigabytes (281 exabytes), which is about 45 gigabytes of digital

   information for every person on the planet. By 2011, the digital

   universe is projected to grow ten-fold to 1.8 zettabytes (1,800

   exabytes). According to the report: "the number of digital 'atoms' in

   the digital universe is already bigger than the number of stars in the

   universe. And, because the digital universe is expanding by a factor of

   10 every five years, in 15 years it will surpass Avogadro's number."

   in-depth study by the Research and Development Department of the

   Koninklijke Bibliotheek (National Library of the Netherlands) found

   that the best alternatives for master digital images to uncompressed

   TIF files were JPEG 2000 lossless (53% storage savings) and PNG (40%

   storage savings). When the master digital image is also the

   distribution file, JPEG 2000 lossy and JPEG with greater compression

   were the best formats. - [19]CB

   Assignment Pages) Publishing System"  [21]Code4Lib Journal  (2)(24

   March 2008)(http://journal.code4lib.org/articles/63). - Many academic

   librarians create and maintain course web pages that identify library

   resources useful for a particular course. In this article, the authors

   describe a project to develop open source software to make it easy for

   librarians to create and maintain these kinds of pages with no HTML

   coding. The resulting [22]ICAP Publishing System is now available for

   anyone to download, install and use. Since this article is in a

   technical journal, their software decisions are explained and code

   examples are included. - [23]RT

 

   Smith, Joan A., and Mike L.  Nelson. "[24]Site Design Impact on Robots:

   An Examination of Search Engine Crawler Behavior at Deep and Wide

   Websites"  [25]D-Lib Magazine  14(3/4)(March/April

   2008)(http://www.dlib.org/dlib/march08/smith/03smith.html). - Anyone

   with a web site knows that a large proportion of the traffic they get

   tends to come from search engines -- particularly Google. So knowing

   how well these search engines crawl your site can be important if you

   want more people to find you. This article studies how the design of a

   web site can influence how it's crawled. For example, "wide" web sites

   that don't have many levels of pages may be easier for crawlers to

   penetrate than "deep" sites that have many levels. To find out how the

   Google, MSN and Yahoo crawlers responded to these two kinds of sites,

   the authors set up some dummy sites and watched how they were crawled

   for a full year. They provide animations that depict how the crawls

   progressed over the year. After discussing how the MSN and Yahoo

   crawlers tended to not crawl as thoroughly as Google (falling as low as

   3% coverage in the worst cases, whereas Google never fell below 99%),

   they conclude that "Digital library sites that want to maximize their

   exposure to search engine users should look to improve the

   crawler-friendliness of their site...site design does matter to the

   crawler and webmasters should consider implementing a crawler-friendly

   site design that includes index pages and/or a sitemap." - [26]RT

   Impede the Growth of Virtual Reference"  [28]Reference & User Services

   Quarterly  47(2)(Winter 2007): 114-119.

   (http://rusq.org/2008/01/06/looking-to-connect-technical-challenges-tha

   t-impede-the-growth-of-virtual-reference-2/). - Sam Stormont, co-author

   of Starting and Operating Live Virtual Reference Services, is the guest

   columnist for the Accidental Technologist in the most recent issue of

   Reference & User Services Quarterly. Although virtual reference

   services have been around in one form or another for over twenty years,

   libraries are still finding that usage by patrons is lower than

   expected. If millions of teenagers are using instant messaging

   everyday, why aren't they knocking down our virtual door at the

   reference desk? Stormont believes that overly complicated virtual

   reference interfaces might be part of the problem. Many systems with

   co-browsing features are unreliable, since every user's workstation is

   set up differently. Convenience is key with our audience, and expanding

   our options with collaborating through instant messaging software might

   be the answer to our popularity problem. - KC

 

   Wisniewski, Jeff. "The New Rules of Web Design"  [29]Online

   32(2)(March-April 2008) - More on the "Simplicity is Dead" movement,

   this time from the Web Services Librarian at Univ. of Pittsburgh. The

   focus is on how web design has changed over the years, how screens have

   become bigger, and the requirements of users have grown. A simple

   Google interface isn't enough because it only does one thing while

   library websites must do many. Meeting the needs and expectations of

   current users requires more than utilitarian values like usability and

   accessibility. There must also be "visceral attributes" such as

   "desirability, usefulness, and value." While the author calls these

   "new rules of design", I think some of them have been around for a

   while. Probably the best lesson we can draw from the mounting volume of

   evidence in this field is not to go too far in one direction or the

   other, neither be too sour or too sweet. - [30]LRK
