…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 book—sadly Amazon’s selection is much more vast than the local public library—but it works on a number of titles. Very slick!
