It is not that I object to the work, mind you; I like work: it fascinates me. I can sit and look at it for hours. – Three Men in a Boat by Jerome K. Jerome

Have an idea for a session in the afternoon of MashSpa, share it here.

Confirmed sessions so far are

Installing/setting up VuFind. – Run by Owen Stephens and David Pattern

Solr Enterprise Search Server, a brief tutorial on how to use it – Run by Julian Cheal and Ian Ibbotson

“”Sixty Minutes To Save Libraries”: Gathering Evidence to Demonstrate Library Services’ Impact and Value” – Brian Kelly

iPads (or any other suitable mobile device) how to remove the librarian from the circulation desk and let them deal with queries no matter where they are – Nick Jackson

A workshop demonstrating the OpenSource Addon for Primo which allows search of Solr/Lucene indexes:
With examples from the German National Licenses ( ->licensed publisher data in a Solr/Lucene index) run by Timm-Martin Siewert


  1. The Jerome crew from Lincoln will be happy to talk about how we’re using iPads (or any other suitable mobile device) to remove the librarian from the circulation desk and let them deal with queries no matter where they are.

  2. Just ICE for hot pants?

    How to preserve integrity of meaning, contents, context, use and perception of library data in an open data scenario while the internet “is being separated into a series of intranets that reflect countries security concerns” (Financial Times Magazine, October 9 2010 p. 19) and there is an increasing pressure on efficiency of resources?

    I will be pleased to
    - present some ideas (about 10 minutes highlighting current priorities and issues of cataloguing and records management processes)
    - facilitate a discussion (max 50 minutes) about “collaborative information e-policies”.
