Open Library

Have you all heard about Open Library? It was news to me... It sounds like one of the designers of RSS is creating a book catalog that anyone can edit, like Wikipedia. It's supposed to go live in March. The Chronicle of Higher Education said many librarians are wary of the mistakes that could occur with non-librarians editing content. But other librarians are supporting it, saying it could make library collections more visible on the internet. The creator is also thinking about integrating his database with Wikipedia and LibraryThing.
