jake2marc-0.3.6

Tagged:  

Mark wrote to oss4lib-list: "jake2marc is a utility that can create simple USMARC records for the full-text journals in databases listed in the jake project.

jake2marc is incorporated into and distributed with the standard jake application, and currently appears as a "Download as MARC" option in the database list and in the record for each database. jake2marc can also be installed and used separately from the main jake application because it queries jake for data over the net. The Perl source code is available for people interested in installing jake2marc on their own web server and modifying it to suit their own library's needs. jake2marc is currently under development and is available under the terms of the GNU General Public License (GPL).

More information about jake2marc, including a detailed description of the records it creates, is available at www.lib.sfu.ca/kiosk/mjordan/jake/."

Prospero 1.2 Released

to excerpt Eric: "Features of 1.2 include: moved staff module from a Perl codebase to C codebase... This will enable us to make a future release an Ariel "plug-in"; added ability to attach pdf documents to an email message rather than posting them to the Web; added Alphabetical sorting to user list database; fixed bugs in TIFF/PDF conversion and other interface problems; [many] changes in server scripts." check it out yourself at the Prospero page at the Prior Health Sciences Library. Very cool; now I can reimplement it here.

iAPI for CDS-ISIS

Tagged:  

Robert writes in: "There is rather good support for basic ISIS software (unfortunately they seem to be moving towards MS Windows) but it is very difficult to get free software (also free of charge) for constructing CGI. So I wrote my free iAPI (in C) to help others deal with problems I had before with ISIS." it's licensed under the GNU GPL...

Gutenbook reader(s)

Tagged:  

from the Gutenbook site: Gutenbook is an app for downloading, and reading of etext books published electronically from the Gutenburg Project. it's fairly basic but it works, and has ports for linux (tk or qt) and windows. not only is this a needed app, it looks like a great starting point if you are interesting in learning to hack one of these environments (gtk-perl or kde/qt).

Avanti-0.3

Tagged:  

according to Peter: "Version 0.3 is a complete rewrite of the Avanti code base after a rethinking of the basic architecture and design. The result is the beginnings of a simple, highly modular and scalable client/server architecture using its own native messaging protocol for client/server communication." For more, see the Avanti site or you can telnet to the live demo to try it out.
