_XML Cataloging Templates / OPACs_
I am greatly interested in learning of efforts that apply an XML-based cataloging record/template for cataloging digital as well as non-digital library materials (books, journals; e-books, e-journals).
I am aware of Dick R. Miller's XML MARC project and resource page
[ http://xmlmarc.stanford.edu/ ].
the digital library Testbed at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign,
"Is XML in Your Future?" Art Rhyno's presentation from the North American Serials Interest Group (NASIG) meeting in San Antonio, Texas in May, 2001
Of Particular Interest are Commercial and/or Experimental projects or systems that have represented the framework of Object-Oriented Cataloging presented within the IFLA report _Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records_
[ http://www.ifla.org/VII/s13/frbr/frbr.pdf ]
in XML (or RDF).
[I am also aware that ENCompass
[ http://encompass.endinfosys.com/whatisENC.htm ]
from Endeavor has XML functionality as does the Innovative Interface system
[ http://www.iii.com/html/products/p_web.shtml ].
As Always, Any and All contributions, critiques, contributions, suggestions,
Gold Medals, Cosmic Insights, Etc. Etc. Etc. are Most Welcome!
