In more deeply exploring some fairly well known, fun, scary cool library tech stuff today, the same ideas and themes surfaced yet again: This is for the masses, but similar services aren’t really offered through library web pages. Yet this is what libraries do. Dude! Can’t think of a single reason not to make this happen fast on a large scale. It is customized content, user generated, and could be tied into ILL/resources sharing/fulfillment. Stick a solid queue function in there, nurture use and community by exposing content from friends using the service and you’ve got the core of the new web library, yes? Yes! How do we make this happen?
