I’m a bit late in pointing this out, but Open Library launched it’s public beta.
I feel that I can say with little hyperbole that this is the future of libraries.
After hearing about the project from Casey Bisson at ALA Annual, I was excited. But seeing this thing in the flesh is a whole other level….my hat goes off to Casey, Aaron Schwartz, Karen Coyle, and the rest of the OL team. This is a huge step for libraries…now, give us a nice, tidy, easy to use API and we’ll be happy.
