Grant allows OSU to develop library software

Interesting Story from Oregon where they recently received almost $73,000 to develop a meta-search tool. The money was part of more than $163 million in grants doled out by the federal Institute of Museum and Library Services to state library agencies. The Oregon State Library received about $2.2 million, which was divided among various Oregon library project proposals, including OSUs.
Most of the grant money will go toward hiring a software developer. A preliminary version of the program should be available for use at OSU in about a month, Frumkin said, although the project won’t be completed until late May or early June 2007.
