We're excited to announce the publication of the fifth issue of the 
Code4Lib Journal. Check out our 1 year anniversary issue! And with the 
upcoming Code4Lib conference, don't forget to scroll down to the bottom 
for Noel Peden's special report on what it takes to get good conference 
video.

Here's the table of contents:

‡biblios: An Open Source Cataloging Editor - 
http://journal.code4lib.org/articles/657
Chris Catalfo

    ‡biblios is an open source cataloging editor designed to allow
    libraries to perform copy and original cataloging in a web based
    environment. ‡biblios allows users to search for, edit, and save
    bibliographic records in the MARC21/MARCXML formats. It also allows
    users to send records directly to integrated library systems such as
    the Koha ILS. Where most MARC editors are part of an integrated
    library system (and therefore require logging in), ‡biblios allows
    users to catalog with an open source standalone system available
    anywhere via a web browser. Unlike other cataloging editors, it
    offers an attractive user interface for searching, saving and
    editing cataloging records. This article describes the system
    architecture and design of ‡biblios.


User-Centred Design and Agile Development: Rebuilding the Swedish 
National Union Catalogue - http://journal.code4lib.org/articles/561
Henrik Lindström and Martin Malmsten

    With a new generation of OPACs emerging that attempt to address
    longstanding shortcomings, how do we make sure that we do not lose
    ground again in the future? This article suggests a combination of
    iterative development and user-centred design as a way to develop
    systems that will meet the constantly changing expectations of users
    by providing both functionality and usability. It gives a short
    introduction to iterative software development and user-centred
    design. A case study of the development of the new version of LIBRIS
    (http://libris.kb.se), the Swedish National Union Catalogue, is used
    as an example of how these methodologies can benefit from each other
    in practice.


Reaching Users Through Facebook: A Guide to Implementing Facebook 
Athenaeum - http://journal.code4lib.org/articles/490
Wayne Graham

    Facebook Athenaeum is an open source application that integrates
    library resources directly into the Facebook website. Facebook is
    one of the single most-visited websites in the world, and its
    popularity among college-aged students provides a unique opportunity
    for libraries to redefine how they interact with students. This
    article walks you through the deployment Facebook Athenaeum, and
    discusses some of the usage trends and pitfalls of deploying
    applications using the Facebook API.


Affinity Strings: Enterprise Data for Resource Recommendations - 
http://journal.code4lib.org/articles/501
Cody Hanson, Shane Nackerud, and Kristi Jensen

    The University of Minnesota Libraries have created a MyLibrary
    portal, with databases and e-journals targeted to users, based on
    their affiliations. The University’s enterprise authentication
    system provides an “affinity string”, now used to personalize the
    MyLibrary portal. This affinity string automates discovery of a
    user’s relationship to the University–describing a user’s academic
    department and degree program or position at the University.
    Affinity strings also provide the Libraries with an anonymized view
    of resource usage, allowing data collection that respects users’
    privacy and lays the groundwork for automated recommendation of
    relevant resources based on the practices and habits of their peers.


Identifying FRBR Work-Level Data in MARC Bibliographic Records for 
Manifestations of Moving Images - http://journal.code4lib.org/articles/775
Kelley McGrath and Lynne Bisko

    The library metadata community is dealing with the challenge of
    implementing the conceptual model, Functional Requirements for
    Bibliographic Records (FRBR). In response, the Online Audiovisual
    Catalogers (OLAC) created a task force to study the issues related
    to creating and using FRBR-based work-level records for moving
    images. This article presents one part of the task force’s work: it
    looks at the feasibility of creating provisional FRBR work-level
    records for moving images by extracting data from existing
    manifestation-level bibliographic records. Using a sample of 941
    MARC records, a subgroup of the task force conducted a pilot project
    to look at five characteristics of moving image works. Here they
    discuss their methodology; analysis; selected results for two
    elements, original date (year) and director name; and
    conclude with some suggested changes to MARC coding and current
    cataloging policy.


Rasmuson Library DVD Browser: Fun with Screen Scraping and Drupal - 
http://journal.code4lib.org/articles/469
Ilana Kingsley and Mark Morlino

    The DVD Browser is a simple application that lets library patrons
    browse movie covers, titles, and reviews. It works by screen
    scraping the the Rasmuson Library catalog for DVD movies and dumps
    the data into a Drupal MySQL database. This paper describes the
    process of setting up the DVD Browser.


Reviving Digital Projects - http://journal.code4lib.org/articles/685
Dianne Dietrich, Jennifer Doty, Jen Green and Nicole Scholtz

    What do you do when you are in charge of assessing and reviving an
    abandoned digital project you had no part in creating or
    implementing? This article will talk about the unique challenges and
    issues involved in such a project, drawing from a specific example
    at the University of Michigan Library. We contended with unfamiliar
    software, limited technical documentation, proprietary file formats
    and platform migration, and will discuss how we approached each of
    these specific technical issues. After reviving our project and
    reflecting on our process, we put together a list of guidelines that
    we feel will help assist others who may find themselves in similar
    situations.


Generating Metadata on a Shoestring sans Programmer, with Our Good 
Friend, Excel (or Any Spreadsheet) - 
http://journal.code4lib.org/articles/535
Jill Strass

    How to use Excel to generate metadata for any encoded filename or
    identifier for any digital object whose attributes can be expressed
    in an abbreviated form.


SPECIAL REPORT: Creating Conference Video - 
http://journal.code4lib.org/articles/555
Noel F. Peden

    Capturing video at a conference is easy. Doing it so the product is
    useful is another matter. Many subtle problems come into play so
    that video and audio obtained can be used to create a final product.
    This article discusses what the author learned in the two years of
    shooting and editing video for Code4Lib conference.


COLUMN: We Love Open Source Software. No, You Can’t Have Our Code - 
http://journal.code4lib.org/articles/527
Dale Askey

    Librarians are among the strongest proponents of open source
    software. Paradoxically, libraries are also among the least likely
    to actively contribute their code to open source projects. This
    article identifies and discusses six main reasons this dichotomy
    exists and offers ways to get around them.
