This is a blog for Dominican University's Internet Publishing class to discuss the reworking of World Libraries.
The hexadecimal codes for the new WL design:
Does anyone have the About the Author section from v5no1? If so, could you please send me the information, either here in Blogger or in class tonight, for the following authors--needed to finish the Book Reviews section: Jacso, Marco, Veit, and Williams.
Well, I didn't actually ask any catalogers about this, but I did some extensive research in the catalog and found that for every journal that I came across that had a name change, both titles appeared as separate records and then had a message in the notes field explaining that either "this is the old title until volume whatever and now the journal is known as something else;" or that "this is the new title and the previous issues can be found under this other title." I also consulted AACR2, and it says that when a continuing resource experiences a title change, you create a new record for each title.
Okay, as some of you know our HTML mark up, when posted to the server, looks nothing like the rest of the journal, specifically the font of the entire article, main heading font, and abstract font. Compare the our articles (V4N1Koh, V4N1Rosenberg, and V4N2Richards) with a current article like this one. The same holds true for the print versions of our articles.
The same holds true for the print source codes.
1. Our template is missing the tag linking the article back to the style sheet. Follow this link and look six lines down for the tag beginning with "link" and ends with "css".
2. Our template has a different "charset" in the first META tag. Follow this link and look five lines down for the tag beginning with "meta http-equiv" Our charset is "iso-8859-1". The other charset is "windows-1252".
Hiya. Just a reminder to those of you who were kind enough to volunteer or accept being volunteered onto this mini-project, here is the agreed upon plan of action:
1. Veronica and Lisa are going to consult with real world catalogers. Veronica is going to speak to Marjorie Bloss. Lisa is going to speak to the Newberry catalogers who frequently experience this problem.Let's plan on posting our findings onto the blog by this Wednesday. I'll smash the results together in a little report and show it to you all on Thursday. Any changes can be made during class. If alls well that ends well, we'll hand it in on Thursday.
2. Sarah is going to consult AACR2 and other cataloging sources from 703.
3. Joy will look at style manuals (Chicago, MLA and APA).
Okay...here is the text of two of the abstracts from WorLib 5-1, ready for you to copy-paste into your markup. I figure this is easier than me scanning such tiny amounts of information and trying to email it to you, or whatever. So, if you happen to have one of the following two articles, just drop these in as paras at the beginning of the article markup from your own scan. The first article in WorLib 3-2 is an example of the abstract form, if you need it.
