I got to thinking last night about a widget. I’m wondering if it would be possible to create a browser plug-in or widget that would link ISBNs, etc. from online shopping sites like Amazon back to whatever public library you choose. It seems like it would work. Most libraries have their catalogs online these days, so I say why not?! It would be a great way to take advantage of stronger search engines and bring in new users who might say – “You mean I can borrow this DVD from the library for free??” I had more last night, but was engaged in trying to sleep off the icks – so I might come back and update this when I’m thinking better… Any thoughts?
