The latest issue of Library Technology Reports looks at Web Scale Discovery services and there’s an interview with the author, Jason Vaughan, on the ALAtechsource.org blog. Together these provide a pretty decent overview of the current status of web scale delivery systems and why these might just be the library systems of the future.
For now though, there’s still a lot being said about next-generation catalogues. In the latest issue of Information Technology and Libraries, the University of Illinois looks at the Usability of the VuFind Next-Generation Online Catalog, while Library Resources & Technical Services includes a case study looking at Creating an Un-Library Catalog using a lightweight content management system.
