deborah: the Library of Congress cataloging numbers for children's literature, technology, and library science (Default)

Along with Anne Sauer and Eliot Wilczek, I've just had a new paper published: "Archival Description in OAI-ORE", in the Journal of Digital Information, a free, green open access journal. This is a version of a paper which we presented last year at Open Repositories 2010, and mercifully, has been greatly improved since the draft of the paper I wrote while running a temperature of 102°.

This paper, by the way, is our attempt to COMPLETELY REVOLUTIONIZE ARCHIVES AND CHANGE THE LAWS OF PHYSICS. Sort of. Revolutionize archival description using new technology, anyway. Changing the laws of physics will have to wait until we get grant funding.

I have no words for the total brilliance that is this article. My cynical soul thought nobody would ever find a real use for OAI-ORE (especially after the utter trainwreck that is -PMH.) Congratulations for doing it!

You might want to get with JoDI about copyediting. I see some missing em dashes, e.g. "One of the difficulties with EAD is that it is a document-centric encoding standard. It was designed with a particular delivery strategylegacy paper-based finding aidsin mind."
