Systems Update

Good news! Last Thursday and Friday, David Brunton, a programmer from the Library of Congress, visited UO to help install the newspaper viewer software for the Oregon Digital Newspaper Program. This was a success, and we now have a fully operational Beta version of the system up and running. Eureka!
While he was here, David also gave a presentation on all the latest projects and developments in library technology from the systems group at the LC.

Stemming from our collaborative work, David returned to DC with a few minor fixes to perform on the software. LC is expected to officially release the software package on November 18th.  If all goes according to plan, our “go live” date for the ODNP newspaper content website will come shortly thereafter: we are aiming for early December. Please stay tuned!
