Library Information Made to Order: An Open Source Project Built for and with Librarians
Griggs, Kim
Computers in Libraries, v29 n2 p13-14, 46-47 Feb 2009
Oregon State University (OSU) libraries, where the author serves as lead programmer, have developed a tool to make it easier for librarians to build and maintain interactive course assignment pages (ICAPs) and subject research guides (SRGs). That tool, Library a la Carte, enables librarians with minimal technical expertise to create dynamic webpages that integrate Web 2.0 features, chat, RSS feeds, etc., with traditional library content such as catalogs and article databases. In this article, the author presents their story of how they stayed true to their beliefs in open source as they created Library a la Carte.
