Some of the work that the THALI has put into the Libraries Interact blog is featured in a chapter in the just released Library Mashups: Exploring New Ways to Deliver Library Data published by Information Today, Inc.
The three plugins were developed by me working closely with the THALI. The plugins are:
- Blogroll to Google CSE plugin
A plugin that allows users of the WordPress system to manage links to websites that are automatically used to construct a Google Custom Search Engine. We use the plugin here for the Aussie Library Blogs page.
- Citation Aggregator
A plugin that aggregates links (citations) from various social bookmarking websites. The links can then be used to construct a post that list the links automatically. We’ll be using this plugin shortly for a series of Reading Room posts.
- Diverse Group Tag Cloud
A plugin that aggregates posts from a specified list of blogs and uses content analysis to construct a tag cloud. We use this plugin for the THALI Tags page.
