Third OCLC Research Software Contest

 
OCLC Research is again sponsoring a software contest to encourage Web-based innovation for libraries, archives and museums.

Developers may enter from www.oclc.org/research/contest/

Contestants are challenged to think differently about their environments and use an OCLC resource to create a Web service that does something interesting, innovative, and useful. They must bring up a working prototype.

The prize is $2,500.00 US.

Entries will be judged by a panel of experts from OCLC and the library/information community. Full details are available on the contest Web site.

The submission deadline is 30 June 2009. The winner will be announced on or before 31 July.
