LibraryThing for Libraries

Tim Spalding kündigt eine neue Dienstleistung an:

LibraryThing for Libraries is composed of a series of widgets, designed to enhancing library catalogs with LibraryThing data and functionality. The achievement is that the widgets require NO back-end integration.

Einschränkung für deutschsprachige Nutzer…

Non-English-speaking libraries are possible for the future. My worry now is that details of the “works” system will cause French books to recommend English books, provided the library has them. And that won’t do.

… aus dem akademischen Umfeld:

LibraryThing’s data is strongest in public library catalogs, so they make the best examples.
