SLIS 5082: Seminar on Research and Research Methods
Seminar Focus: Z39.50 Implementation and Evaluation Methodologies  (Taught: Fall 1999)

3 hours. 
The broad goal of this course is to engage students in technology planning and implementation through a case study and case application of a particular technology (i.e., Z39.50). This course introduces and explores methods for implementing and evaluating the use of Z39.50 server and client software for distributed information retrieval. The course has a technical focus and students will setup and deploy one or more Z39.50 servers on one or more platforms (e.g., NT, Linux, UNIX). Students will also develop methodologies for assessment, evaluation, and interoperability testing and performance metrics for Z39.50. This course has limited enrollment, and all potential students must be approved for enrollment by the instructor prior to registration.
