LibData is a library oriented web based application which provides authoring environments for subject pathfinders (Research QuickStart), course related pages (CourseLib) and general purpose web pages (PageScribe). LibData encompasses all of these applications, but a typical installation need only take advantage of one or two of them -- great local variation and emphasis is possible. This page template, and the LibData open source philosophy, borrows from the GNU Project.

LibData was built with open source components (Apache, mySQL, and PHP) and moved into production at the University of Minnesota for Fall Semester 2003. Our production instance at the University of Minnesota uses a different security mechanism (campus-wide x500), and has some additional development work for enterprise portal connectivity. Having and controlling easily-understood source code greatly enables productive localized integration.
