1    The Faceted Classification A faceted classification differs from a traditional one in that it does not assign fixed slots to subjects in sequence, but uses clearly defined, mutually exclusive, and collectively exhaustive aspects, properties, or characteristics of a class or specific subject. Such aspects, properties, or characteristics are called facets of a class or subject, a term introduced into classification theory and given this new meaning by the Indian librarian and classificationist S.R. Ranganathan and first used in his Colon Classification in the early 1930s.

6    Introduzione all'archivistica "Le pagine che seguono non vogliono essere una sorta di "prontuario" di regole e strategie adatte ad ogni tipo di operazione archivistica (dalla consultazione alla gestione, all'organizzazione): ogni archivio è una realtà a sè stante, con una struttura ed una storia uniche ed imprescindibili, e che, come tali, vanno analizzate attentamente. Il corso di "Introduzione agli archivi" è concepito come uno strumento che, almeno in parte, può aiutare a districarsi all'interno delle strutture e delle istituzioni archivistiche, ad entrare in relazione con esse, a comprendere in che modo debbano e possano essere indagate, fruite, organizzate, a percepirne il fascino e la rilevanza storico-culturale." .

14    Current Awareness: Application of New Technologies in Libraries The K.U. Leuven Central Library distributes a weekly list of journal articles references pertaining to the application of new technologies in libraries. This services is maintained by Erik Arfeuille and is based on journals recently received by the Vakbibliotheek of the K.U. Leuven Central Library. Cited documents can be obtained through normal Interlibrary Loan. Overview of references are posted every week to the newsgroup belnet.wg-lib and are also distributed to the Digital Libraries Research discussion list (DIGLIB).  
15    Gruppo di lavoro IFLA su FRBR "MARC formats are problematic when it comes to actual linking devices, and FRBR highlights the notion of bibliographic relationships, that are best expressed as actual links. In particular, most MARC formats are rather inadequate in expressing links between authority records. New tools such as XML seem to be more convenient in that regard"  
16    E-Prints in Library and Informations Science "E-LIS is an electronic open access archive for scientific or technical documents, published or unpublished, in Librarianship, Information Science and Technology, and related application activities. E-LIS is an archive to deposit preprints, postprints and other LIS publications, it is a service for finding and downloading documents in electronic format, offered as a free service to the international LIS community. The goal of the E-LIS Archive is to promote communication in the field by the rapid dissemination of papers."

18    All Consuming This page is the result of several different processes. Inspired by Book Watch, I created a script that visits newly updated weblogs hourly via (if you'd like to let me know that there are books on your page, use's ping form). The script then looks for links to items and saves them. I then aggregate all that information together to find the most frequently mentioned books. My scoring mechanism is weighted to favor recently mentioned books, so that the list remains fresh, and offers new insight into what the weblog community is reading at the moment. All product information is stored on my server after being retrieved from Likewise, information from Google is also saved for a day before being retrieved again.  
19    Moving theory into practice: digital imaging tutorial This tutorial offers base-level information on the use of digital imaging to convert and make accessible cultural heritage materials. It also introduces some concepts advocated by Cornell University Library, in particular the value of benchmarking requirements before undertaking a digital initiative. You will find here up-to-date technical information, formulas, and reality checks, designed to test your level of understanding. The tutorial can stand on its own, but it is intended to be used in tandem with another product, Moving Theory into Practice: Digital Imaging for Libraries and Archives, by Anne R. Kenney and Oya Y. Rieger (RLG, 2000). This publication picks up where the tutorial leaves off and advocates an integrated approach to digital imaging programs, from selection to access to preservation and management. Over 50 international experts contributed to the intellectual content of this book.  
20    Metadata is essential web writing skill "Metadata is the: who, what, where, when and how, of your content. It is that 30 second elevator description. Metadata may include: heading/title, summary/description, author name, date of publication, geographic classification, subject classification, keywords."  
21    Denton, William. "FRBR and Fundamental Cataloguing Rules." May 2003. "Abstract: IFLA's proposed data model, Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records (FRBR), arranges bibliographic entities in a new way, using an entity-relationship model that unites the products of intellectual and artistic endeavour, their creators, and their subjects. A catalogue that uses FRBR principles would give the user more helpful information and power over the collection than current catalogues do. This essay looks back at the fundamental laws and objectives of cataloguing and librarianship — as set down by Panizzi, Cutter, Lubetzky, and Ranganathan — and shows how FRBR embodies them. The FRBR entity-relationship model is described, and a possible web-based FRBR-aware catalogue imagined. Current work on FRBR, including experiments done with WorldCat, is examined. FRBR offers great hope for the future of catalogues. "  
22    FEDORA "The Fedora project was established under the auspices of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to build a digital object repository management system based on the Flexible Extensible Digital Object and Repository Architecture (Fedora). The new system, designed to be a foundation upon which interoperable web-based digital libraries, institutional repositories and other information management systems can be built, demonstrates how distributed digital library architecture can be deployed using web-based technologies, including XML and Web services.

Jointly developed by the University of Virginia and Cornell University, the system completely implements the Fedora architecture, adding utilities such as batch creation tools and interactive programs for creating behavior objects that facilitate repository management. The version 1.0 of the software is aimed at providing a repository that can handle one million objects efficiently using only open source software. Later versions of the software will add important functionality, such as policy enforcement, versioning of objects and performance enhancement to support very large repositories.

The software has the following key features:

  • It is written in Java 1.4.
  • A repository is exposed as a Web service and is described using Web Services Description Language (WSDL).Digital object behaviors are implemented as linkages to distributed web services that are expressed using WSDL and implemented via HTTP GET/POST or SOAP bindings.
  • Digital objects are encoded and stored as XML using the Metadata Encoding and Transmission Standard (METS).
  • All of the software resulting from the project is freely available under an open-source Mozilla Public License."

24    PREMIS In 2001-02, OCLC and RLG convened an expert working group, reflecting a variety of institutional and geographical backgrounds, to consider the types of information falling within the scope of preservation metadata. The group's efforts culminated in the public release of A Metadata Framework to Support the Preservation of Digital Objects (PDF:696K/54pp.), a comprehensive metadata framework describing the information necessary to carry out, document, and evaluate digital preservation processes. Using the metadata framework as a conceptual foundation and starting point for its work, the PREMIS working group will carry forward the activities of the first working group. The focus of the PREMIS group will be on the practical aspects of implementing preservation metadata in digital preservation systems.

27    Come si scrive per il web A key element in the success (or otherwise) of any Website is the information it provides. If you want your site to stand out from the Internet crowd, you need to provide the most Web-friendly content you can. And given the volumes of text on the Web, making sure that what you write is Web friendly is obviously important. .

30    Challenges and Opportunities Presented by Archiving in the Electronic Era / Kevin M. Guthrie In building an electronic archive of scholarly journals, JSTOR has found that important decisions must be made in five broad areas: technology, backup and preservation, relationships with content owners, relationships with content users, and economic sustainability. Perhaps most importantly, however, we believe that that the discussion of archiving needs to be centered not so much upon how it should be done, but on the proper organizations that should be taking on the responsibility. The job of insuring the long-term availability of electronic materials is a dynamic challenge that resists once-and-for-all solutions; and therefore requires the dynamic and flexible capabilities of organizations with a mission specifically directed toward providing this service. .

Inside each gallery, you will find thumbnail links. When clicked upon, these thumbnail links will zoom into different areas of each image. Rolling the mouse over these images will display the original scan before it was retouched. All of the original scans in these galleries were supplied. I am only taking credit for the retouching, not the photography. These are only on display for the purposes of showcasing my portfolio and should never be distributed.  
47    L'evoluzione dell'RSS: ECHO? Why are you doing this? RSS is five years old. It was designed for news sites, a way for them to list the stories they had. Things are different now, and RSS is mostly used as a way of sending around the content of weblogs. RSS has been kludged and pushed into this world, but it doesn't really fit. In other words, you're building a better RSS. Well, what we're doing isn't just a replacement for RSS -- it's also a chance to unify the blogging formats. Now, if you want to build a weblog tool like NetNewsWire that can both read and write weblogs, you need to know a variety of different formats and protocols: HTTP, XML-RPC, RSS 0.9, RSS 0.91, RSS 0.92, RSS 1.0, RSS 2.0, the Blogger API, the MetaWeblog API, the new Blogger API, etc. We'd like to make this just one format (Echo) and one protocol (HTTP). .

51    The Organizational Model for Open Source Programmers contribute to free software and open source projects for many reasons—some for the fun of it, some to improve their skills, others for a paycheck. Many people have wondered why these people give their work away. The truth is that many projects have incorporated in order to protect themselves from individual liability. Since the Free Software Foundation was founded in 1985, a number of new nonprofit foundations have formed, often around specific technologies, to serve the interests of programmers. .

May 2003 "This is another essay I wrote in the spring of 2003 for Prof. Clare Beghtol's course on the theory of classification and knowledge organization, at the Faculty of Information Studies at the University of Toronto. It was a fascinating course. We didn't talk about FRBR but I had become interested in it after reading a mention in American Libraries (reference below), and it tied in to topic maps and ontologies and all that, so I made it the subject of my final essay, this twenty-two-pager. I'm glad I did. It's a great topic, and reading Lubetzky was a treat. (He died, aged 103, while I was researching this." .
