25 september, 2013 Är biblioteken vår tids dinosaurier? En gång imponerande mäktiga men nu på utdöende? Allt färre besöker våra bibliotek. Nedskärningar hotar. Nedmonteringen går i rasande takt, tycker en del. Inom hundra år kan dörren bakom den sista besökaren stängas för alltid. Kort sagt: är bibliotekens tid förbi? ·

is an open, editable library catalog, building towards a web page for every book ever published. Just like Wikipedia, you can contribute new information or corrections to the catalog. You can browse by subject, author or lists members have created. If you love books, why not help build a library?
No apology for Wikipedia, either. For the vindication of Wikipedia as an academic source, Harvard University Library [a lead partner in the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA) Project] has expanded Wikipedia’s works on books to over 60,000 [Harvard Library Innovation Laboratory, ShelfLife Collaborative, Librarycloud Demo]:
... two-way integration with Wikipedia,... is ... an example of how DPLA can weave itself into the knowledge ecosystem of the Web. If an item has a Wikipedia page, we let you see all the other items categorized with it at Wikipedia.
We're proud of this; it took considerable effort and ingenuity.
If the DPLA collection doesn't contain that work, we put the work's Wikipedia page on the shelf.
