  1. RedLightGreen RLG Accelerates Undergraduate Research

  2. Exercise in orienteering • How did we arrive? • What is it? • What have we learned? • Brief tour • Where are we going?

  3. How did we arrive? • The RLG Union Catalog • From project to pilot • Grant from Mellon Foundation • Internal thinking, advisory group, more internal thinking • Emergence of a target audience • More funding from Mellon

  6. FRBR Work Expression Manifestation Item RedLightGreen “title clusters” (includes related works) editions items What have we learned? FRBR

  7. What have we learned? Data mining • Data mining – powered by Recommind’s MindServer • Search and classification tools • Relevancy ranking • Extends users vocabulary behind the scenes

  8. What have we learned? MARC to XML • MARC as XML in DB2 • Based on the Library of Congress XML DTD for MARC

  9. What have we learned? User studies • Studies conducted in April and May, 2002 • Enormously useful • Some findings difficult to implement in the short term
