Terry writes: "I've posted an OAI Harvester written in .NET (C#) on Sourceforge. The harvester was designed to work pretty much like the OAI::Harvester perl module by Ed Summers, but was designed in C# so that users building web applications in ASP, ASP.NET or stand-alone clients could utilize the component. Like OAI::Harvester, this component has built-in support for Dublin Core, but can be passed custom handlers for handling different metadata schemas. One of the things on my todo list is to provide a built-in package for MARCXML. While the component is written in C#, the software will run on any platform that has either the MONO 1.0 or .NET 1.1 runtimes (program has been tested on Fedora Core 2, Slackware 10 and Windows XP). On SourceForge, I've included three packages: the component; an example program; the component and the example program in one download. Online documentation is available. The component is being released by myself and Oregon State University Libraries under the general GPL."

VDC writes: "The Virtual Data Center (VDC) is an OSS digital library system "in a box" for numeric data. VDC provides a complete open-source, digital library system for the management, dissemination, exchange, and citation of virtual collections of quantitative data. The VDC functionality provides everything necessary to maintain and disseminate an individual collection of research studies: including facilities for the storage, archiving, cataloging, translation, and dissemination of each collection. On-line analysis is provided, powered by the R Statistical environment. The system provides extensive support for distributed and federated collections including: location-independent naming of objects, distributed authentication and access control, federated metadata harvesting, remote repository caching, and distributed virtual collections of remote objects. Release 1.0 of the VDC provides RPM's for Redhat 9.0, Fedora 1 Core and Redhat 3 Advance Server. Supported standards and protocols and formats include: DDI, Dublin Core, and MARC for metadata; R,SPSS, SAS,ASCII, and STATA for data ; OAI and Z39.50 for queries; UNF's and Handles for naming/citation."

Romano writes: "JOpac2 is a open source project we started in 2002. The idea came out because we need a OPAC able to integrate different data sources without data transformation. For this, JOpac2 is written in Java and is build on a class structure that make easy to load data in any ISO2709 format (ISIS, UNIMARC and text-only if you map it on a ISO2709 structure). JOpac2 is currently used by the University of Trieste for two small catalogs: non SBN data from a old ISIS based system and a journal catalog. Now at v.1.0, we are working for a new release and a loan module."
Peter writes: "Avanti MicroLCS version 1.0 beta 3 has been released. This is the first public release of MicroLCS in over a year. Much of the development work during that time has been devoted to refining and improving basic features. New features in Beta 3 include a powerful and flexible boolean search capability, a redesigned user interface that is clean simple and easy to learn and use, a context sensitive help system, and standalone Java clients. Beta 3 is coming close in terms of features to the basic OPAC and cataloging system that the production 1.0 release is expected to be."

Peter writes: "The Vincennes project develops an open Citation Facility Interface, connecting typically an Editor/Word Processor (EWP) and a Reference Manager Application (RMA). Primary purpose is the easy insertion of references (ï¿½citation markersï¿½) and creation of bibliographies (ï¿½reference listsï¿½), but in particular in connection with the spread of XML encoded documents, it is expected that many other uses will be developed. The projects develops both an interface standard nd a reference implementation. Benefits include an
easy way to get an important feature lacking for years;
it makes free software more attractive; the ability to freely combine two major applications will attract users in particular from academia.
A Discussion Paper introducing the project has been added. Please send comments to firstname.lastname@example.org."
