Jon Udell did a talk on remixing the library at the Global Research Library summit. Abstract: In an online world of small pieces loosely joined, librarians are among the most well qualified and highly motivated joiners of those pieces. Library patrons, meanwhile, are in transition. Once mainly consumers of information, they are now, on the two-way web, becoming producers too. Can libraries function not only as centers of consumption, but also as centers of production?
At work (how do librarians say it? MPOW ?) we use Google Analytics extensively to analyze the behavior of web sites and the people who use them. I had a call this morning about applying the same tools to library web sites, and it made me start to think about a bunch of stuff that I had been noodling around about but not actually writing up. There's at least two ways to use analytics tools to help the process of making a better system. One is to understand your user population better, so that you can provide them with things that they are finding you for that they're not finding on your site; the second is to test and refine the process by which people complete specific tasks that you want them to complete.

Picture Australia has been absorbed into Trove. It was originally launched in September 2000, and at that time, was a unique and ground breaking service, bringing together digitised images from cultural heritage collections around Australia for not only all Australians to see but also the world. Contemporary images were sourced from Flickr via a series of Groups, which ensured individual contributions to Picture Australia were included in the snapshot of Australiana. We will continue with this tradition using the Trove: Australia in Pictures Group. To read more about how we integrated Picture Australia into Trove please see the bulletins in the Trove forum . Please be aware that as a result of this integration the format of search URLs have changed, therefore any saved or bookmarked Picture Australia hyperlinks that use search terms will no longer work.

What you can find in Flickr The Powerhouse Museum has many projects going on in Flickr, one of the largest online photo communities in the world. In Flickr you can find some of our photographic collections, public discussions around exhibitions in development, and plenty of other photography from around the Museum. Since then photo-sharing has changed the way exhibitions are curated and promoted with Flickr discussion groups focusing on exhibitions. The Photo of the Day blog also shares the museum's historic photography collection with the Flickr community. Our collections in Flickr The Powerhouse shares significant photographic collections through a Flickr initiative known as the Commons on Flickr . The Powerhouse Museum joined the world’s largest photo library, the US Library of Congress in April 2008 and was the first museum in the world to participate.
