Meeting with Marlon, Jack, Daniel, Ray, Alan Bell, and Colin Bell.

  • Clarification on Library role: doing this solely to be useful to campus data availability: seeing a need and trying to fill it. They don't have an agenda of their own.
  • OFIS currently has 300 records in the 'bibligraph' format that would need splitting.
    • Colin says there are auto-splitters within refbase...
  • Allan suggests that data could be generated back to a starting-date, eg., 1994; earlier is quite difficult.
  • problem of reconciling profs: there are a few standards: Nature, ISI identities. none are in systematic use.
    • there will be ongoing reconciling problems, but Alan thinks that is less work than entering records manually.
    • most of the work is at the outset, clarifying search terms to get the proper records for each prof.
  • action items:
    • library will set up a virtual server.
    • Colin will set up a fresh refbase install on it. Colin will write up material about how he imagines web-services being implemented. (both in >2 weeks)
    • Engr. (and CS?) will provide names / OFIS contribution data for a set of 6(?) profs to compare. Suggestion: include a CS prof, since refbase search requirements will be different?
