Dear Os4lib members,
Mike Eschman records and broadcasts Gutenberg books. His site is
http://www.engima.org and he's become an active member of the Schoolforge
coalition. I'm forwarding his most recent message about his project to the
os4lib-discuss list in hopes that you can provide him with the kind of guidance
he needs to make this project more useful to libraries.
for OpenSourceSchools.org and Schoolforge.net

Subject: [school-discuss] I4U news about future technology, gizmos and gadgets
this link (at the top of the page) is for a $139 cd organizer that lets the
librarian lend cds out and put them back into any tray without losing track
of anything. it holds 75 cds - i know for a fact i can fit all +10,000
documents in the gutenberg collection into this unit as audio, .txt and .pdf.
it is a stand alone unit - no computer required.
we are going to use this.
if it goes out of production, we will build a replacement.
our cds have this indexing scenario :
iso9660 header -
note - all indexing info is std. linux asci character
volume id - 64 characters
publisher id - what about this ?
preparer id : i would like to use a confirmed e-mail address.
abstract information (i would like to hold this to 320 chars. (4X80 on a
bibliographic information - what about this ?
copyright info. - gutenberg lic. here -- can it be a http:// link to the full
text, which is actually not stored on the cd ? or can it be on another cd in
the unit ? or must it be embedded in every file containing "product" ?
note that gutenberg and UCLA personnel have been copied.
librarians out there, how do we use these fields ?
mike eschman, etc...
"Not just an afterthought ...
