Staff at the University of Michigan continued work on a mockup of changes needed to the PageTurner interface to support navigation of XML-based articles. Staff began to develop functionality to render JATS articles in PDF (for download purposes).
The University Library is selling several thousand gently used books, including duplicate and superseded titles, and other books not needed for the collection. There's something for everyone, at low, low prices.
Staff at the University of Michigan created a mockup of PageTurner changes that will be needed to navigate the XML-based journal articles that will be submitted via mPach. Work also continued on modifications to PageTurner to display JATS XML and embedded media and on refinements to the METS specification for mPach Submission Information Packages.
The mPach team at the University of Michigan updated the project timeline on
University of Michigan staff completed a diagram of the mPach system architecture, which has been added to the mPach website. Staff also refined the schema for mapping bibliographic data from JATS XML (the format to be used for encoded text) to MARC records, which are required for ingest into HathiTrust. Work continued on wireframes for the Dashboard module (see a description of all modules), on the profile for the METS file that will accompany digital objects in Submission Information Packages, and on rendering XML articles in the HathiTrust PageTurner.
University of Michigan staff rewrote the list of modules to be included in mPach, a package of tools Michigan is developing for publishing open access journal content in HathiTrust. Staff divided modules into three categories: Editorial Workflow and Peer Review, Content Preparation, and HathiTrust.
