Why we did it l.jpg

Why we did it?

Starting September 2005, we no longer stamp due dates on books or other materials checked out from the University Libraries.

‘ I have not received any reminder from you. You MUST waive my fine!’


Why developed l.jpg

Why developed?

It was a part of the PDA@hand project ;

It was a project in Dec 2005

To ‘push’ overdue information/HKUL events to their PDAs/MP3s

Why OutLook?

Almost ALL PDAs/MP3s use Outlook as an agent for PIM Synchronization.

Development

  • Oct 2006

    • Tested Innovative’s ‘My Record Feed’

    • it only shows “X Materials due soon" without showing the due date and information of each item

    • NOT USEFUL!


How to get circulation info l.jpg

How to get circulation info?

Either

  • By doing review file periodically ;

    Cons: not real-time; overloads III server

  • Mashup (web 2.0 terminology!!!!)

    Cons: not a formal method to obtain information; it doesn’t work whenever webpac changes

Why hack into iii system l.jpg

Why ‘hack’ into III system?

III is a closed system ;

Difficult to get useful information to build apps ;

The only ‘interface (API)’ to III’s data is ‘review file’ & PatronAPI ($$$$) ;

We want to do more , but how?


Facebook s experience l.jpg

FaceBook’s experience

Facebook provides an excellent case study here.

Facebook becomes famous and hot after they released their API to public;

A lot of people (not exactly programmers) have built thousands of apps shared among users;

a US$15billion company !


Can innovative become another facebook l.jpg

Can Innovative become another Facebook?

  • YES, if and only if Innovative :

    • releases APIfreely ;

    • Opens their System ;

    • Helps IUG members to develop Apps;

    • Encourages IUG members to share their Apps;
