      "The immediate goal for RLG's "RedLightGreen" project (formerly known as
      the Union Catalog on the Web) is to offer rich, reliable library
      information that is unique in the Web environment and to deliver that
      information in ways that meet the expectations of Web-savvy users."

      "RedLightGreen at a glance

      Goal: To help students find authoritative sources for research
      information, by leveraging data contained within the RLG Union Catalog

      Intended users: Undergraduate students

      Interface: Publicly accessible Web site

      Underlying data: 126 million bibliographic records representing 42
      million titles

      Technologies used: IBM DB2, XML, Recommind MindServer

      Pilot deployment: Scheduled for fall 2003"

      <http://www.rlg.org/redlightgreen/>

      "Responding to new expectations in this environment, libraries, archives,
      and museums have begun asserting their role in the information discovery
      process, rethinking and repositioning their traditional toolthe catalog.
      In 2002, RLG began working to reinvent and transfer its largest
      bibliographic database, the RLG Union Catalog, to the open Web environment
      in a completely new way.

      This database was formed by the collaborative contributions of RLG member
      institutions. The wealth of information and worldwide scope of the 23-year
      old catalog (over 40 million descriptions of books, maps, films,
      recordings, and manuscripts from 300 countries, in over 370 languages)
      make it a tremendous potential resource for an enormous Web audienceas it
      has long been for the students and scholars at subscribing libraries and
      research centers."

      In all, this search produced 484 citations.

      Judging, from this search alone, I would not consider this tool as one
      limited to undergraduate use. This would be beneficial for high school
      students as well. Going the other direction, forget graduate students,
      this tool will benefit faculty and teacher research and be a tremendous
      boon to the graduate student, of course.

      To further illustrate the value of this tremendous tool, here is a full
      record as a sample of this database's contents from the search above:

      I suggest that all within the sound of this message hike over to this
      database and give it a test drive. It would be hard for me to come up
      with enough superlatives to describe the value of this research tool.
      My only suggestion at this point is that the search result pages all show
      the total number of citations found so that the user knows immediately the
      quantity of source material that they are dealing with.
