We'll be using this to update our TV/Broadcast section at the Resource Library into a proper relational database in instances where Needlebase  is overkill.

In other news, I'm working on a nifty project in Needle using metadata extracted from the Grateful Dead collection on the Internet Archive. So far it has just been de-duping and some keyword clean-up but I have a couple ideas for what I'm thinking of as data-centric/visualizer based "enhance" finding aid. Will publish the results when I'm done!

PS - Found this gem while combing through the archives
