Greener Pastures by ProQuest


Usually, articles in Computers in Libraries are filled with helpful, often step-by-step, instructions on how to introduce or create a new product or service to library staff or patrons. In "The Emperor's New Repository," Daniel Chudnov has taken a different tack in helping staff build a digital repository. According to Chudnov, the first mistake is agonizing over software selection. When what it means to build a repository is still evolving, it's great to have so many options and alternatives. Susanne Bjorner begins her CyberSelection column by stating that you can consider yourself lucky if you never had to try to find shelving space for the multivolume set of Thomas Register of American Manufacturers, aka "the big green books," or a place to spread out if you needed to look something up.
