Jenny Molloy from the OK Open Science group and myself ran a small  
hack day at the Oxford e-Research Centre this weekend that focused on  
the Bodleian Chinese Library, integrating some of the data with other  
sources and exploring some of the feeds available from another  
Bodleian service. We had technologists, curators and librarians so it  
was a friendly mix.

The initial write up is online[1] and hopefully it will be fleshed out  
as the code and data come online.

At least one of the projects is being pushed into Github for an  
initial release shortly if I get time to do some more work on it at  
the Humanities hack on Friday.

We have another event definitely organised for March at Cambridge  
University Library next year and one in planning for the Bristol/Bath  

We are open to suggestions for things that we could hack on or other  
libraries that might be interested. If you have any, please feel free  
to contact me off list.

Kind regards,
