Librarian Action Figure

Capitalising on richer Web data "The project’s second demonstrator involves semantic blogging in the bibliography management area. It was chosen because people working in this field need to share small items of information with a peer group in an easy and timely fashion. “The portal includes peoples’ Web diaries [blogs] with three semantic behaviours – view, navigation and query – built over the base,” says Miller. “If you are in a research reading group, you can call on a number of scripts to generate forms which tell others what the research paper discusses, and so on.” The enriched information generated by blogging and Web technologies makes it easier for computers to retrieve archived data."

The LIBRARIAN ACTION FIGURE "Weapon of Choice:
The Dewey Decimal System...The role of a librarian is to make sense of the world of information. If that's not a qualification for superhero-dom, what is?"
