Design/methodology/approach: A brief description of web services is followed by a discussion of the importance of web service standards and the role of initiatives to encourage the development and use of such standards in libraries. Findings: Web services offer many advantages to the library community, but the majority of these advantages will only be realised if web services are standardised. Originality/value: This paper is a call to the library community to prevent the proliferation of proprietary web services by supporting the development and use of standard web services.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Emerald||Journal:||OCLC Systems and Services: International Digital Library Perspectives||Volume:||22||Issue:||1||Start page:||5||End page:||9||Copyright (published version):||2006 Emerald Group Publishing Limited||Keywords:||Libraries; Worldwide web; Standards||DOI:||10.1108/10650750610640739||Other versions:||http://www.ucd.ie/wusteman/articles/wusteman-web-services.doc||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
