The folks at the Spencer S. Eccles Health Sciences Library at University of Utah are freely giving away (thought not supporting) the Personalize Eccles functionality of their Library home page. Give it a try--it really is quite slick. Those interested in obtaining the source should email Wayne Peay directly.
revised stylesheets for jake are available here. these account for provider names in database listings of search results, separate out links better, and are renamed/reorganized for better modularity.
Peter says: "A draft design overview document outlining the Avanti Circulation System has been posted at the Avanti web site ... it's time to take all these pieces and develop a usable product. The circulation component is the first such chunk."
as seen at freshmeat, improvements include "Added keybindings, page numbering, Etext title display and the shell of searching functionality. Sorry, searching will be in the next release. Also using make for building the tarball, installing and uninstalling." more available at Gutenbook site...
Art writes to the OSDLS list: "I have done some updates at: 22.214.171.124/pytheas/pytheas.html. I am hoping to get it moved over to the more stable and more powerful OSDLS server soon. There is still lots to do but I cleaned up the need for a login and reworked the docs." Good to see some positive movement... it works, too.
as seen at gnome.org: "This version is only a minor bug-fixes release." Btw I've been using this a bit and I'm getting ready to let go of Endnote for good. Wooh-hooh... :)
The Free Library System (FLS) is a pure java implementation of a library system providing cataloging and circulation written by Dave Dunkin. FLS 0.1.1-2 presents as a java applet and is licensed with GPL and LGPL. The demo, specs, and goals are at the FLS homepage.
I don't know what my library is anymore. Personalizing library sites is here to stay, and the July Library Journal points out several efforts whose authors are "willing to share their code": My Library at Virginia Commonwealth University, MyLibrary at NCSU, and My Gateway at University of Washington. More than just a perfect marketing pitch to the American consumer, no? :)
new features include addition of non-xref'd links in search results (now you can see _everything_ jake knows about), links for per-database title lists, better layout of search results including links and providre names, and a number of bugfixes. try it out at jake.med.yale.edu...
as seen at freshmeat: "Etext string searches are now working. Added CREDITS, MANUAL files. Cleaned up the Makefile. Refined the keybindings. Init method looks for .gutenbook and Gutenberg_Library directories; makes them if they don't exist. This in preparation for implementing user preferences UI and saving etexts locally." all this and more available at the Gutenbook site.
