David Lindahl, Co-Principal Investigator, eXtensible Catalog Project at the University of Rochester. The eXtensible Catalog (XC) Project is developing software to facilitate the discovery of both digital and non-digital library resources on the web. The software will integrate with (not replace) commercial and open-source ILSs and repositories. Compatibility with Ex Libris systems will be discussed, and toolkits will be provided that will enable any repository to be exposed through standard OAI-PMH and NCIP interfaces. XC will provide set of next-generation user interfaces with faceted browsing and integrated with content management and learning management systems. Metadata services are at the center of the XC architecture. These services enable an institution to clean-up and aggregate metadata, FRBRize records and transform between schemas. In addition to the included services, the XC plug-in architecture will allow other libraries to build and share metadata services. The software will be released in stages over the course of 2009 and under an open-source license. This presentation will include an overview of the features and architecture. http://eXtensibleCatalog.org
