As a parallel to my question about Useful stock SQL datasets, I wonder if anyone has come across a library/web page/wiki/etc. that contains stock SQL data models. For example, the problem of maintaining table(s) for login credentials is faced by countless developers. Are any of you aware of a data model that provides a best-practices implementation of this table? What about other use cases? I'm thinking about things like inventory control, sales reporting, application events (login, logout, viewing a given page or item, etc.). I came across a great resource at, but wonder if there are any other resources I should take a look at.

Faced with the challenge of providing access to full-text content offered through journal aggregator services, the University of Denver found a better way to integrate costly aggregator journal titles with traditional information resources through Gold Rush. Gold Rush is a database maintained by the Colorado Alliance of Research Libraries that allows the serials unit to populate the local OPAC with a single URL for each journal title with aggregator content. With one URL to maintain, the unit limits the amount of time devoted to electronic journals management.

Staff of USGS Science Centers in Region 7: Upper Colorado Basin collect a wide variety of natural resource data types including spatial, geologic, hydrologic, and biologic. Data included in USGS-series publications that are not publicly available in USGS databases are published in Data Releases. Short descriptions and links to Data Releases produced by Region 7 Science Centers are shown below.

In 2005-2006 the HS/HSL ran a pilot project for the powerful desktop research tool, SciFinder Scholar which provides chemical and related scientific information. This database had been requested by researchers for years. The HS/HSL could not afford to license the database with its limited budget. Armed with usage statistics and over 20 testimonials supporting continued access to this essential tool, the library requested funding from Academic Affairs. When presented with the collective evidence, Dr. Malinda Orlin, Vice President for Academic Affairs agreed to support this resource. Thanks to Dr. Orlin for the funding and to the research faculty and staff for their passionate support for this product. 041b061a72
