Open Library Environment

This project report (click entry title for link) describes the attempt to assemble a radically different approach to library automation: an enterprise-wide, web-services based series of modules that work well together.

This one bears watching.

I think this type of work has already been implemented... I want to know much more about what exactly you want to do.... my organization works on new innovative ideas...

What I want to do is to build an entire open source shop, from desktop to server to catalog. Too many public institutions are hostages to other people's business plans. Our problem is that we still integrate a lot of different tech pieces and applications that don't, yet, fit well into that environment. It's also true that in some cases, the open source apps haven't quite reached the level of sophistication we need. But I do have very bright people on my staff watching this closely.
