A Dewey browse

Lorcan 1 min read

deweybrowser.pngI am very pleased to see the DeweyBrowser appear on our ResearchWorks page. Thom trailed its appearance a while ago and had discussed some technical context. There is some more information on a background page.
We have brought it up over a collection of eBooks extracted from WorldCat; we will probably bring up some other collections in due course.
We have worked with visualization techniques in the past, and watch other intiatives with interest. I think it is fair to say that opinions are divided internally about how effective some of these approaches are once one gets past the initial ‘play’ phase.
I like the approach presented here. Try it for few minutes!

Library leaders should be drawn from across the organization. Any idea that technology leaders are overly specialised or too distant from general library work is outmoded and counter-productive.
