Wowbrary

Wowbrary looks like a great way to keep our patrons updated of new additions to our collection.  This site uses the Z39.5 data from library automation programs to generate automatic weekly email newsletters and an updated rss feed that we could easily paste into our public website of new additions to the collection.  They include reviews from Amazon, but that could potentially mean a wrinkle since Amazon is unlikely to have data on our additions from outside of the US.  They do charge a small fee, but are a non profit organization and it seems fairly reasonable.

BUT, they don’t currently support Follett’s software.  Hopefully this will change.

I’ve already been in touch with them about possible improvements that would make this work for us, but no luck just yet.  So, for now, we’ll sit and wait.  Sigh.
