Posted on May 15th, 2009 Lukas Koster Why use a non-normalised metadata exchange format for suboptimal data storage? © leah the librarian This week I had a nice chat with André Keyzer of Groningen University library and Peter van Boheemen of Wageningen University Library who attended OCLC’s Amsterdam Mashathon 2009 .

There have been some initiatives or exploration of the potential uses of Topic Maps to Integrated Library Systems ( ILS ) or catalogues in the MLA institutions. However, most of them are prototypes and not implemented due to the fact that no vendor in the MLA field has already incorporated Topic Maps to their systems yet.

But the artwork involved no live action, no stage, no human spectacle. While the Italian couple and their director, Paolo Ruffino, sat in the back at SoHo's Artists Space silently manning laptops, about 60 downtown types filed into the gallery and seated themselves before a ten-foot projection screen. Most of the audience, however, was dispersed around the world, sitting in front of their own computer screens.
