Research Library Services will provide DWeb Camp with local access to the "scholarly record": research papers, books, notable blog posts, etc. Participants will be able to check citations and dig into knowledge a layer deeper than an encyclopedia.

Research Library Services, a DWeb Camp project led by Brian Newbold of the Internet Archive’s Fatcat (https://fatcat.wiki) project, will provide a convenient content set / corpus for people experimenting with distributed storage and communication systems on-site.

Research Library Services proposes:
  • A catalog of about 100 million papers, with fulltext copies for 10-20 million of those
  • a small wired front-end server (4 cores, 16+ GB RAM, 2TB+ SSD) to provide HTTP access to the catalog, with metadata (but not fulltext) search
  • A fileserver with about 50 TByte of disk storage laser printer with consumables to print about 200x 5 pages hard copies
  • single-seat workstation (raspberry pi and a monitor) attached to printer
  • available over wired ethernet, bridging to whatever mesh/wireless or dweb tunneling folks are interested in
  • A booth will offer designated service hours to help folks look things up and discuss distributed libraries.
