    • How much information is there?
      • Soon most everything will be recorded and indexed
      • Most bytes will never be seen by humans.
      • Data summarization, trend detection anomaly detection are key technologies

    • What are major components of a CMS?
      • An integrated set of software tools that support the content management functions
      • The major components are:
        • Data repository
        • User interface
        • Workflow scheme
        • Editorial tools
        • Output utilities
    • How does a CMS work ?
      • Basic information flow
        • Template is designed

        • Content is placed in a template for display to the end user
      Page Content Page Template
    • How it works (CMS) Content (usually text) Template (layout, colors, navigation) CMS System Complete web page User
    • How it works (OPAC) Metadata About object OPAC Web Searching Interface MARC Records

      • Structured Content = Content re-use
    • Integration of blogs/RSS

      • Many include software for parsing RSS feeds, or syndicating our own content
    • Challenges of implementing a CMS
      • Distributed versus centralized authorship
      • Often, programming knowledge/technical expertice required
      • Training on the system
