Projects currently using ThingISBN
I know a lot of projects out there are currently using ThingISBN. I'd love to compile a list of them, with some details of who's responsible, what they do and so forth. [Tim]
- University of Huddersfield OPAC (Dave Pattern) -- uses the offline ThingISBN file to provide links to other editions within the catalogue, the feature gets around 12 clicks per day from users
- Send It To Me! (Eric Lease Morgan) -- given an ISBN number, this demonstration application will search the local catalog for the exact match. If found, then it will prompt the user for their local ID and issue a request to have the book delivered to them. If not found, then the application will use ThingISBN and xISBN to display similar works by author or subject. If all else fails, then the application will ask for another ISBN.
- BookChaser Editions Lookup Tool - uses thingISBN to compare editions results between Amazon, Librarything and WorldCat
- Sudoc+, a greasemonkey script enhancing the sudoc, french national catalog for universities libraries. It adds a div with other editions of the book (as seen here). Thingisbn is called within the greasemonkey script and then a serverside script queries the sudoc to find links to the titles (smachefert-gmail-com for more informations)
