"Whether you’re a mashup novice or a seasoned pro, this work will expand your techie toolkit, and help you wow customers with customized blends of data."

—Peter Bromberg, Assistant Director,

This unique book is geared to help any library keep its website dynamically and collaboratively up-to-date, increase user participation, and provide exemplary web-based service through the power of mashups.

Nicole C. Engard and 25 contributors from all over the world share definitions, tools, techniques, and real life applications. Examples range from ways to allow those without programming skills to make simple website updates, to modifying the library OPAC, to using popular sites like Flickr, Yahoo!, LibraryThing, Google Maps, and Delicious to share and combine digital content.

"Library Mashups is a great resource for anyone aspiring to create cutting-edge library services.  The book’s case studies draw from the practical experiences of an impressive group of forward-thinking professionals in the field."
