…if you could automatically go from looking at a book on Amazon.com (or Borders) to seeing if your local public library has a copy? Well your prayers have been answered with Jon Udell’s LibraryLookup Bookmarklet Generator. I’m betting that at least a few of my friends (hi Ginger!) will think this is terrific.
(The Chemeketa Library system uses Innovative, by the way.)
It doesn’t work for every bookâ€”sadly Amazon’s selection is much more vast than the local public libraryâ€”but it works on a number of titles. Very slick!
