During 2008-2009 the National Library of Australia undertook a major project to integrate our family of discovery services (Libraries Australia Search, Picture Australia, Australian Newspapers Beta, etc.).
The Library also has an interest in using and creating open source software which supports the discovery and management of library collections. For more about why we are doing this, see our IT Architecture Project Report (pdf file, 627 kb).
The aim of this wiki space, which we are calling Library Labs, is to let our friends and colleagues know what we are doing, to invite feedback and to provide a space for discussion and collaboration.
We are interested in forming a community of Australian business analysts and developers who are working on similar problems and who are interested in interoperable, standards-based solutions. We are also interested in working with colleagues at an international level to develop requirements and prototypes.
