Assignment #6
Due February 19th


(5 points) Hey, this is a purely optional assignment... As you may know Evergreen is probably going to be a cooperating organization with the Participatory Design conference that will be held in Seattle this coming November (PDC 98). As part of their web site they'd like to build an on-line bibliography of relevant citations. I've talked to the conference chair, David Levinger, about this project and he's very excited.
I'd like to be able to give David a list of URLs in about a week and let him choose one (or, possibly, a hybrid). I think it's only fair that the designers and Evergreen get a byline on this one. BTW, If you do work on this, I'd like to ask you to work in a team.

Some requirements and guidelines:
  • The web site should be as easy to use as possible.
  • The site should probably use Perl and CGI scripting.
  • The bibliography should be presented alphabetically and should look like printed bibliographies.
  • People should be able to add citations that refer to books, articles, web sites, films, or other relevant relevant artifacts.
  • The web page should include links back to the main PDC 98 web page.
  • We encourage you to add other useful and/or cool features. The catch is that they shouldn't unnecessarily complicate any other aspect of the system.
