To inform librarians about the benefits, costs, and technologies involved in implementing a content management system.
A discussion of how XML is used to separate content from presentation, how this technology is used in a home‐grown freeware application, and the results of converting a static website into a database driven one through the use of this application.
Demonstrates that converting to a dynamic, application driven web site results in a more flexible, efficient, and consistent web presence.
Every library is unique and what worked well at Rensselaer might not work as well elsewhere. Luwak is currently only available to organizations at Rensselaer.
A useful primer on how a conversion like this happens and on the sort of features that can make a database driven web application run smoothly.
This paper provides a unique account of one libraries' experience in making the sort of transition that will become increasingly important for all library web sites.
