Join The Movement - Take the Libhub Initiative Pledge - http://www.libhub.org/
The objective of The Libhub Initiative is to publish BIBFRAME resources to the web, cross-link resources which are common among libraries, and, through cross-linking improve the ability for people to discover these resources on the open Web. The goal is ultimately that users would then be able to click on appropriate resources and be taken back to the library’s catalog. In 2011 The Library of Congress contracted with Zepheira, LLC a consulting company with standards and data expertise especially with libraries, to define the way forward for moving library data into the web. The current vehicle for sharing library data, the MARC record is not feasible as an ongoing method. For the past 2 years, Zepheira has been defining a linked data model called BIBFRAME. When MARC data is converted to BIBFRAME and exposed to the web, it is discoverable via web search engines and other web discoverable applications. BIBFRAME has been tested by many large libraries (British Library, German National Li - greg hardin

StackLife lets you browse all of the items in Harvard’s 73 libraries and Book Depository as if they were on a single shelf. It’s built on a few core ideas: 1. Every book has a context StackLife shows you that context as a stack of neighboring books 2. Every book has many contexts StackLife lets you switch contexts just by clicking. The default stack shows the item in its primary subject classification. But since most works have been classified under more than one subject heading, you can click on any of those headings and see it grouped with those neighbors. 3. Every book has some community relevance StackLife heat-maps books to reflect how often they’ve been checked out, put on reserve, called back early from a loan, etc. Also, it’s not just books. StackLife lets you browse among all of Hollis’ catalog, including DVDs and CDs. - greg hardin

Stayed Up All Night - http://suan.fm/
THIS IS SUAN There are endless ways of creating mixtapes online, but we still miss the feeling of sending someone a personal mixtape. So we've built Suan (Stayed Up All Night). You can decorate a personal tape, build your playlist and share. That's it. No ads, no likes, no comments - as personal as it gets. - greg hardin

Library Publishing Toolkit - http://opensuny.org/omp...
Both public and academic libraries are invested in the creation and distribution of information and digital content. They have morphed from keepers of content into content creators and curators, and seek best practices and efficient workflows with emerging publishing platforms and services. The Library Publishing Toolkit looks at the broad and varied landscape of library publishing through discussions, case studies, and shared resources. From supporting writers and authors in the public library setting to hosting open access journals and books, this collection examines opportunities for libraries to leverage their position and resources to create and provide access to content. The Library Publishing Toolkit is a project funded partially by Regional Bibliographic Databases and Interlibrary Resources Sharing Program funds which are administered and supported by the Rochester Regional Library Council. The toolkit is a united effort between Milne Library at SUNY Geneseo and the Monroe Coun - greg hardin

Web Accessibility Toolkit | Making digital resources usable & accessible in research libraries - http://accessibility.arl.org/
This toolkit is here to: PROMOTE the principles of accessibility, universal design, and digital inclusion. HELP research libraries achieve digital accessibility. CONNECT research libraries with the tools, people, and examples they need to provide accessible digital content. About 20% of Americans have some kind of disability. But one year after high-school graduation, only 10% of students with disabilities are enrolled in two-year colleges and 5% are enrolled in four-year colleges. Research libraries have an important opportunity to meet the urgent need to make information resources accessible to all of their patrons, regardless of ability or disability. In so doing, libraries can fulfill their mission to be content leaders in higher education and enhance information access to their users. The path forward requires planning and collaboration across the research institution, particularly with academic leadership, disability services offices, and information technology units. - greg hardin
