LSJ Editors' Blog: Superpatron Ed Vielmetti

08 May 2006

Superpatron Ed Vielmetti

You'll have to excuse our silence of late. The LSJ editors have been swamped with the enviable but arduous task of choosing our first editorial board from dozens and dozens of excellent applications--enviable, because they are all so good; arduous, because they are all so good. The board will be announced very soon--stay tuned.

In the meantime, I would like to direct your attention to one of my favorite library-oriented blogs: Ed Vielmetti's perfectly named Superpatron blog, a blog "For library patrons who love their libraries, who take advantage of everything they have to offer, and are always on the lookout for great ideas from libraries around the world." Ed, a patron at Ann Arbor District Library in Michigan, is always on the lookout for new ways to improve library services and his perspective as a patron provides some wonderful insights. This post about his Amazon/AADL "mashup" is a good place to start.

That IS a cool trick -- does anyone know how the coding for such a mashup works?
What programming language, where you locate the Amazon records, etc. I'm interested, but haven't gotten into that uber-techy side of Web2.0 yet.
