Access 2009, Friday lightning talks


All of the lightning talks at Access 2009 on the morning of Friday 2 October were good. The video recording has them all, I think, or you can read Peter Zimmerman's notes. I didn't write down much.

Dalhousie's WorldCat Local had problems with the FRBR implementation and they want some changes made to suit academic libraries. For example, if there are multiple editions grouped together, it shows at the top the one with the most holdings in WorldCat libraries. They always want the most recent edition to show, especially in the sciences.

Bess Sadler showed some great GIS stuff.

My York University colleague Ali Sadaqain talked about our implementation of VuFind.
