Lyceum: A Blogsphere for Library Reference
This paper by Jeffrey Pomerantz and Frederic Stutzman from the University of North Carolina has been submitted to JCDL 2004. From the abstract, "In this paper we discuss the use of blogs in libraries, and specifically the potential of blogs for use in library reference services. We describe Lyceum, an open source software project designed by ibiblio.org, which is a facilitator of blogspheres and a tool for intelligent automatic information management within blogspheres. We discuss ways in which Lyceum and blogs in general may facilitate library reference services."

Delegates unanimously passed two resolutions: to add a fourth delegate-at-large to the Members Council Executive Committee, and to add a clause to the Guidelines to the OCLC WorldCat Principles of Cooperation to discourage unauthorized use of OCLC-derived records."
