Lambert Heller told me that the FRBR Blog discussed my older post „Warum del.icio.us für Bibliothekskataloge untauglich ist„. Because the google translation is bad, i translate it in English, i hope i did it better than google I did only a few changes :
How i have write on the Mailinglist INETBIB, i think that the project to which Wilfred Drew of the Morrisville State College Library of the point at the mailinglist web4lib is not a good idea. He wrote that in his catalog it is possible to publish the findings with “post to del.icio.us” and addtoany could indexed at del.icio (Jakob Voss reports on it).
In my opinion this no equitable way to tag library collections, but a meander. Why that?
Objects that are indexed by del.icio.us are websites. This means if 1000 libraries index their holding by del.icio.us, there would be for every identical book up to 1000 entries, because the websites are always different. Users that search now at del.icio.us will find up to 1000 entries to the same resource that will not contain much more information. Additional it is not possible for libraries to get a benefit from the work in other library catalogs.
So what should be a alternative? The right way would be using a system that does not index websites but media. Examples for that are CiteUlike, Bibsonomy (the literature part) and LibraryThing [and very new the open library project]. Libraries should think about methods, how additional information about the media can added i this systems. It is certainly illusionary to expect, that there will be only one entry per media, but it would be more easy through editing of the entires to get further to this goal.
Del.icio.us is excellently suited to replace present link lists and index internet sources. Libraries who are doing this you will find at the mélange blog.

Today i started official the library 2.0 bibliography. Its realized with the software WIKINDX (spoken Wiki Index) Everyone who likes can enrich the bibliography. Just register under the point Wikindex and i will moderate your account as soon as possible. WIKINDX supports BibTeX import and export so that resources from other services (CiteULike, Connotea and Bibsonomy) can be easy reused. Also the resources from bibliography can be reused.Tags:Bibliothek 2.0, en, BibTex, Library 2.0, WIKINDX ]]>
In German i have already written about Zotero. Now where i have my own WordPress Blog i just installed few plugins that improve the compatibility with Zotero. But maybe i should start at the beginning.
Zotero is a Plugin for Firefox up version 2.0, that it makes possible to save citations during surfing for later use.
Not until now because the data is saved on your own computer. But in one of he next versions should there be a server based solution and an integration in social bookmarking services (exspecial for citations).
Zotero supports different metadata standards. Which Metadata Zotero can extract from a page depends on the quality of the metadata that is offered. Two interesting standards are unAPI and COinS.
Also for WordPress blogs can enhaced by plugins, so it is possible that every blogpost gets direct metadate that is reconiced by Zotero and can be saved inkluding Autorname, Blogname and Abstract.
It‘s very simple You just have to install two plugins nothing more:
The COinS plungin://dev.zotero.org/download/coins-metadata.zip
for the metadata
The unAPI plugin, thats allows Zotero to save the abstract (or the first 500 of a blog entry)
Yes so easy it it. But it would be nice if you also use the badge with a hint for others with a link to this post. This is the code for that:
<a href="http://www.bibliothek2null.de/?p=189" title="Support Zotero with WordPress"><img src="http://www.bibliothek2null.de/wp-content/uploads/2007/07/support-z.png" alt="Support Zotero with WordPress" /></a>
The Goal is that blogposts can bet better and more easy cited and when more people uses this format other tools will support this standards. And if you want you can also left an link to your blog in the comments.
Lets join!Tags:en, Literaturverwaltung, Software & Tools, Blogs, english, Firefox, Zotero ]]>
