Good resource to help librarians understand mashups and to use it in their libraries
JonathanGorman on LibraryThing 7 months ago
I'm a little torn here. There's some really good essays in this collection. It was interesting to read about some of the mashups as well as the hints and crumbs of semantic web technology that were scattered about. On the other hand, I think there was a general nebulousness about the target audience and it comes through. It's not surprising, given the very broad possible audience that library technology books always have. Still, I'd like to have seen a few more nitty-gritty details of actual implementations. I suppose though I'm probably on the high end of technical experience for the target audience.That being said, if you're a librarian who programs or a "techie" librarian I'm sure you'll find some inspiring material in this book. I don't know if I'd pay the full $40 for it personally (maybe $15 to $20), but I'd probably order it for a LIS collection.
