Back in November we started using the project management system called Scrum for our work in Digital Collections. It requires that you work in designated time periods called "sprints" and at the end of each sprint you complete a deliverable product. Anyway, we've done four sprints, each in a two-week period, since then.
I really like this agile methodology and our digital team is adjusting to Scrum pretty well. But I've found it requires the same kind of intensity and focus that's also need for persistent blogging. So, blogging has gotten off-track at bit, but hopefully I can do a little catching up.
For starters, I really liked this post from last month by Roy Tennant: The Core of Bibliographic Description. Over the years, I've always been interested in this question of what are the core elements for bibliographic description. OCLC Research has been doing some evidence-based work in this area and the results are quite helpful.
