Content development[edit]

January[edit]

  • 7 January: Wiki Tuesday at the Grande Bibliothèque in Montreal, Quebec. Monthly "Wiki Tuesday" workshop at the Grande Bibliothèque of BAnQ.
  • 7 January: Wiki Tuesday on Wikifying the library catalogue at Western University in London, Ontario. Presentation from Alex Mayhew, PhD Candidate at Western University exploring how to expand the list of FRBR user tasks to include user participation. One of the main challenges is creating a framework for incorporating this user engagement. The proposed framework presented here is the result of a synthesis of Knowledge organization strategies from across many domains, incorporating concepts from fields as diverse as Biology, Philosophy and Literary Theory: Phylomemetic Cataloguing. In a Phylomemetic Catalogue users would be able to add Memetic relationships between records using Semantic triples. These relationships between texts are conceived as a line of descent of ‘textual memes’, somewhat similar to the Tree of life. These relationships would capture user perceptions of the descent of memes and can be visualized as family trees of related texts.
