What are the participants supposed to code? I hear about
all these hackathons, but what can really be achieved?

I'm starting to see a need wrt bibliographic data, and that
is to index individual articles in journals that I digitize. But
I'm really doubtful that I can do anything about this in a
few days in London.

Here is volume 166 (2002) of Fennia, on the OJS platform,

Here is volume 66 (1940) of Fennia, scanned by myself,

Here is volume 21 (1904) of Fennia, scanned by Google and
then copied to the Internet Archive,

Here is a bibliographic record to a paper in volume 36 (1914)
of Fennia,

How can we get all articles from all volumes into
one search platform? Can openlibrary.org be used?
Perhaps the 12 million MARC records from Harvard
already provide an article index to Fennia?
