Thom introduces our plans to pilot a mechanism to capture user input alongside bibliographic records. This will be first introduced in Open WorldCat later this Summer.

The idea is to have a Wiki that complements WorldCat. People could add reviews, cover art, comments, etc. and relate these to bibliographic records (maybe at the FRBR work-level too). We hope the system is flexible enough so that people do (good) things we’re not expecting. We’d like the Wiki to be available anywhere WorldCat records are. [Outgoing]

This is one area we hope to use the MetaWiki framework we are currently working on.
