Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Combining multiple Web 2.0 technologies into one vital interface enhances the user experience for librarians and patrons alike. A "mashup" does just that by commingling external services, e.g., by putting flickr images over a Google map. In a library context, extracting and/or enhancing the internal content of an OPAC increases searchability; adding book jackets, reviews, and social tagging complements any Library 2.0 initiative. Editor Engard (director, open source education, ByWater Solutions) and 25 contributing authors bring their journeys and ultimate successes to life by providing case studies that describe in detail the implementation process for integrating mashups. Divided into five parts, the text covers the definition of mashups (both literally and technically) and the process of mashing library web sites and catalogs, working with maps, digital images and repositories, and value-added services. Engard maintains a web site to support the book's many electronic references, and the appendix conveniently lists the web sites by chapter as well. VERDICT All in all, even the most experienced programmers should learn a thing or two here, though newcomers to technology may find some of the solutions technically intimidating. Recommended for librarians interested in enhancing usability of their library web site or catalog.—Judy Brink-Drescher, Molloy Coll. Lib., Rockville Centre, NY
