My colleagues in Research, JD Shipengrover and Jeremy Browning, wrote a very nice little application as part of a competition called 10K Apart with the tagline “Inspire the Web with just 10K”. The idea was to see what kinds of applications could be built with a total file size including images, scripts & markup that didn’t exceed 10K.
On the Library Finder page, JD provides some additional details:
Using HTML5 Geolocation to determine where you are, LF shows you the libraries near you. LF is meant to be mobile ( iOS & Android) but it can be used anywhere with FF6+, Safari, Chrome, or IE9+. Now go support a library. Why? Because libraries are awesome!
Btw, we also like what the app has to say about libraries:
Nice Work and Kudos JD and Jeremy!
Btw, kudos to the entire OCLC Research team.
Here are a Few Recent Examples of Their Interesting and Exciting Work:
Demo App: WorldCat Identities Network
Awesome and full of potential not only in the library world.
