I <3 today's LCC thread, and ones like it.
It seems like there's a ton of knowledge out there (buried) about parsing various pieces of library data like this, but I haven't really seen a concerted effort to log/organize this info in one place. It seems like such a thing could be a useful resource for the Code4lib community? (Because I would find it terribly useful.)
I started a page on the wiki: http://wiki.code4lib.org/index.php/Parsing_Library_Data
It's skeletal, but the idea is to collect/share any & all info about parsing library data--code, techniques, methods, problems, general discussion--to make it a little easier to build off of each other.
If something like this already exists, I'd love to know about it (and in that case this wiki page would be redundant). Otherwise--yeah, it would be great if you guys could go in and add links to relevant articles/work/blog postings--especially if this is a resource you'd find useful, too. Or make some suggestions, and I'll take care of it...
