Thanks, Debra, for encouraging participants to report out. The distributed conversations are tough to summarize (based on my limited experience) but if they include good links, people can try to follow along at a distance. The seed conversations sound like they'd be worth the trouble!

Subject: Re: LITA/ALCTS Library Linked Data IG managed discussion at ALA Annual in Chicago

Hi Karen, and others who might be interested; apologies to those who are not

The problem with streaming is that, after Jackie's short presentation - which could be captured, and I will try -  it's going to be table discussions, and there might be 12 tables. So the noise level is going to be high, and we could only get fragments. We are going to ask table facilitators to post short messages to todaysmeet (http://todaysmeet.com/) about summarizing their table's talk. I will set up a room, and share the link to the transcript of those text messages. Folks might tweet as well; I'll establish some hash tag at the start of the session.

thanks for your interest,
debra

Subject: best way to make MARC files available to anyone

I have crosswalked the Project Gutenberg RDF/DC metadata to MARC.  I would
like to make these files available to any library that is interested.

I thought that I would put them on my website via FTP but don't know if
that is the best way.  Don't have an ftp client myself so was thinking that
that may be now passť.

I tried using Google Drive with access available via the link to two
versions of the files, UTF8 and MARC8.  However, it seems that that is not
a viable solution.  I can access the files with the URLs provided by
setting the access to anyone with the URL but doesn't work for some of
those testing it for me or with the links I have on my webpage..

I have five folders with files of about 38 MB total.  I have separated the
ebooks, audio books, juvenile content, miscellaneous and non-Latin scripts
such as Chinese, Modern Greek.  Most of the content is in the ebook folder.

I would like to make access as easy as possible.

Google Drive seems to work for me.  Here's the link to my page with the
links in case you would like to look at the folders.  Works for me but not
for everyone who's tried it.

Subject: Re: best way to make MARC files available to anyone

Dana - perhaps a public Dropbox folder? Or just put the files up on your
site somewhere, served with a "Content-Disposition: attachment" header so
they trigger a download when accessed? E.g. here's a
StackOverflow<http://stackoverflow.com/questions/9195304/how-to-use-content-disposition-for-force-a-file-to-download-to-the-hard-drive>thread
on that. If they must be a recognized MIME type, you could compress
them as .zip or .tar.gz files on the server, which would reduce download
time either way.

I did try clicking the links on your site and they never downloaded, the
request just timed out.

Not to discredit what you're doing, which is great, but aren't MARC records
already available for Project Gutenberg? See their offline
catalogs<http://www.gutenberg.org/wiki/Gutenberg:Offline_Catalogs#MARC_Records_.28offsite.29>page.
