Resource Sharing Initiatives in Atlantic Canada: The Standards Dilemma

-- October 14, 2004 11:00 am - 11:45 am

It would be difficult to imagine building any type of computer-based service for libraries without the availability of standards like Z39.50, NCIP, OpenURL, MARC, etc.. Yet, we constantly stumble/trip in our implementations because of problems associated with the standards, or more importantly, our interpretation of the standards. The session will cover some standards related gotchas encountered in the development of the Atlantic Scholarly Information Network’s Resource Discovery and Management Service (ARDMS).
