Archive and Visualization of LITA Forum Tweets

Using Google Spreadsheets, the Twitter API, and the TAGS document template from Martin Hawksey, I’ve set up an archive of tweets with the hashtag #LITAForum.

Martin has also created a couple of visualizations of tweets based on the archive:

The archive is updated automatically every 5 to 10 minutes.

On questions regarding ISO/DIS 18626, Information and documentation — Interlibrary Loan Transactions

There is a ballot under consideration within the ISO TC 46/SC 4 on InterLibraryLoan Transactions. The ballot description is:

This International Standard specifies the transactions between libraries or libraries and other agencies to handle requests for library items and following exchange of messages. This standard is intended to at first supplement and eventually succeed the existing international ILL standards ISO 10160, ISO 10161-1 and ISO 10161-2, which are based on the outdated open systems interconnection model. The introduction of the draft standard provides some background on the relationship of the new standard to the previous one.
