The Remixing Archival Metadata Project (RAMP) is a lightweight web-based editing tool that is intended to let users do two things: (1) generate enhanced authority records for creators of archival collections and (2) publish the content of those records as Wikipedia pages.
The RAMP editor can extract biographical and historical data from EAD finding aids to create new authority records for persons, corporate bodies, and families associated with archival and special collections (using the EAC-CPF format). It can then let users enhance those records with additional data from sources like VIAF and WorldCat Identities. Finally, it can transform those records into wiki markup so that users can edit them directly, merge them with any existing Wikipedia pages, and publish them toWikipedia through its API.
This is only one suggestion, but I believe that these are the sorts of efforts that would, even if only partially successful, make much greater differences in the lives of the patrons than RDA and FRBR could ever hope to do. Such a project would take advantage of the powers of modern systems, and would cause little disruption to the library's everyday work. And I think it would actually be a lot easier to do something like this with the catalog than what we saw with the Little League box scores. That was incredible. Give me access to the XSL sheet and I could probably do the first sentence right now. Maybe more.
