A Look at Cloud Computing and the Library
Oregon State University
Michael Klein, the Oregon State University Libraries new Digital Applications Librarian, will be taking a closer look at application development in the Cloud. If you'd like to know more about Cloud computing, the current available solutions and how these solutions will impact the library community in the present and beyond, please plan on attending. Be sure to come with your curiosity and your questions.

Western Oregon University
Needle™ http://www.needlebase.com/ is a new web-based application that supports harvesting, aggregating, analyzing and publishing data compiled from multiple sources. It provides an interface that allows non-programmers to create custom database models and automatically collect data from web pages or structured data files (such as csv and xml). Needle™ also provides sophisticated support for merging, deduplication and clean-up of aggregated data, and edits persist even after data is refreshed from the original source. Once compiled, published data can be accessed via API or exported for use in other applications. This presentation will demonstrate key features and hopefully inspire people to think about cool stuff they could do with an application like this.

Serials Solutions 360 Link API: The Willamette Test Drive
Willamette University recently subscribed to the Serials Solutions link resolver (360 Link) and initially chose to use the vendor's API to create a mashup between Serials Solution data, data exported from our catalog, and the OCLC xISSN service. The API is complete with one exception that we are exploring with Serials Solutions. According to the company, we are the only library using the API, which raises the question of why, and whether we should do more to encourage adoption among Serials Solutions customers.

NoCode: Preserving Electronic Records
University of Oregon
Libraries must preserve electronic records, but tools that do this well aren't mature yet. Rather than trap this information in systems that will soon be obsolete, it's safer and more effective to address the management and preservation problem by intelligently exploiting functionality built into all file systems. By using simple but effective structures, materials can be indefinitely maintained in a format that can easily be migrated when suitable technologies become available.

LCSH Autocomplete and other Power Toys:
Al Cornish & John Scott
Washington State University
The new Summit catalog has many useful features, but it still lacks some that staff and patrons alike find highly useful such as LCSH and title autocomplete. This session demonstrates how this sort of functionality can easily be added to the Summit catalog using harvested data and the WorldCat API.

Transitioning to Evergreen
Beth Longwell, Sage System Administrator
David Drexler, Eastern Oregon University
In March 2010, the Sage Council unanimously voted to migrate their 76 member libraries from a III Millennium system to Evergreen. It is expected that most if not all of the libraries will be migrated in December 2010. This session discusses the technical, organizational, and service challenges of a large scale migration that affects staff and patrons in many institutions.

Digital initiatives at Lewis & Clark
Lewis and Clark College
At Watzek Library we believe that digital initiatives should reach out beyond library centric endeavors and engage in collaborative projects that further faculty research and teaching interests. In this session, I'll share the results of a broad survey of faculty interests in digital library work at Lewis & Clark. I'll discuss potential future projects as well as ideas surrounding our embryonic digital initiatives program, including ways that we are restructuring our staff to support the program.
