    Thanks to all of our presenters! We had a great turnout and saw a delightful variety of library and libraryish projects. Well done, all!

    The presenters at this meeting were:

    Jean Amaral (QCC) — Guide on the Side
    Amy Ballmer (GC) & Jennifer Poggiali (Lehman) — Avalanche Magazine Index
    Steve Zweibel (Hunter) — RFID in library books
    Yoko Inagi (CCNY) — Using macros in Aleph
    Robin Davis (JJ) — CollectiveAccess and Gephi

    Presenters, please list any links and helpful resources here so we can follow up on your work.

    John Jay library digital collections site:
    Not going to post the URL yet, but our chosen and metadata-friendly CMS is Collective Access ( We’re working with Open Flows (, a web dev consulting team. Will launch next semester.

    Visualizing research community information (see hairball viz attached):
    * Gephi: network viz software
    * Great tutorial: make a scientometrics network using Scopus + Gephi (but note that this process probably visualizes co-authors not affiliated with your institution—see for the script I wrote to only visualize John Jay-affiliated authors)
    * Easy tool: CSV » Gephi-friendly file:
    * Automate various Scopus data viz without Gephi:

    I’ll write up a tutorial soon, perhaps once I come up with better visualizations and figure out where I can get similar humanities citation data. (Anyone?)
