Enhanced OPACS

Next Tuesday the IFTF task force will be giving a presentation on online bibliographic databases. Several of those databases are already being integrated with local library catalogs. Here are some examples of OPACs enhanced with third party data:

Nelsonville Public Library (with Amazon data)

University of Washinton Library (with Worldcat data)

Danbury Library (with Librarything data)

If you haven't had a chance to explore these catalogs, I would encourage you to do so.
