John Unsworth, Dean and Professor at the University of Illinois Graduate School of Library and Information Science, writes about the BibApp in University 2.0, his chapter of the new open-access Educause e-book: The Tower and The Cloud.
Unsworth describes the BibApp as a “flexible and innovative information service”, which helps to “seam” together university data in a new way. Ultimately, he concludes it is the re-imagination of currently accessible data that will lead to exciting new University 2.0 applications: “What we need more than big science or big servers are good ideas about interesting things that faculty, staff, and students could do with the information produced in, by, and about universities”.
We here at the BibApp definitely agree. Thanks for the write up!
