On Marshall Keys and Multiformats

Leigh Dodds of Ingenta blogged a review of Marshall Key's SSP talk as well as a session I myself missed: Hanging Together in a Multi-Format Landscape, starring Geoff Bilder (also formerly of Ingenta and now with Scholarly Information Strategies, Roy Tennant, of the California Digital Library and Cindy Hill of Sun, and thoughtfully put together by EBook Library's Alix Vance.

I know from Alix's description of the planning for this session that the speakers believed that for the most part libraries and publishers should rely on technology vendors to solve the hard problems of making data integrable and not try to reinvent each wheel locally. But this review puts more meat on the bones and is worth a read.
