GPO Federates Federal Government Catalogs—GPO MetaLib
by Peggy Garvin
Sometimes a product has been coming down the road for so long that we are caught by surprise when it finally arrives. This is the case with GPO MetaLib, a new federated search service from the U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO). Announced in October 2010, GPO MetaLib has been in the agency's plans since it began transition to a new Integrated Library System (ILS) more than 5 years ago. GPO MetaLib uses the federated search solution from Ex Libris Group that goes by the brand name MetaLib. Why MetaLib? In 2004, GPO selected the Ex Libris product ALEPH for its ILS, and MetaLib is part of GPO's ILS package.

HTML5-Powered E-Readers for the Browser
by Paula J. Hane
Starbucks recently announced the launch of its Starbucks Digital Network, in partnership with Yahoo! The offer of free Wi-Fi in its U.S. stores caught my eye, but I was even more interested in the free content (some normally subscription-based), which was billed as a "collection of hand-picked premium news, entertainment, and lifestyle content along with local insights and events." But wait, there was even more hidden in the press release: There were free ebooks from major publishers, courtesy of the Bookish Reading Club and New Word City. But here's the sentence that propelled me to investigate this matter further for this article: "A new HTML5 reader, powered by SkyShelf from LibreDigital, allows customers to read books in the browser on their laptops, tablets and many smartphones."
