Mashups and Libraries [Event ref: TG5/MASH]
This event will give you an overview of mashups from some of the experts, relating mashups to the Library setting. Then in the afternoon you can have a go at creating your own mashups.
What are Mashups?
They are web applications that combine freely available data from various sources to create something new and potentially more useful into a single tool. They can be a very powerful way to meet our user’s varied expectations and provide excellent web-based services adding value to library websites and library catalogues. They can also allow libraries to promote Library services where the users are.
