OCLC researchers celebrate a decade of NetLab digital-library R&D by speaking at anniversary conference
Weibel opened the conference with a presentation on the Dublin Core experience and its significance for the future, while Vizine-Goetz spoke about the semantic web and located some of OCLC's research work in relation to it. Dempsey closed the conference by examining concepts, issues, and opportunities in research and learning.
Founded by Traugott Koch and Anders Ardoe, NetLab focuses its activities primarily on digital library and net-based information discovery and retrieval, mainly in Internet/WWW environments. Koch currently is NetLab's senior librarian for electronic information services. He was an OCLC Research visiting scholar in 1997-1998.
