Cool Tools! New Feature Allows Users to Embed Ebook Titles From “The Open Library” on Web Pages and Blogs

From The Open Library (an Internet Archive Project) Blog:

2018-05-06_11-11-25Openlibrary.org has over 3M books lining its digital shelves, but nothing quite beats being able to embed your favorite book directly on your personal site. Last week, with the help of volunteer Galen Mancino, we launched an embed tool which lets you add any Open Library book to your website or blog. Next time you write a book review, you can place its Open Library book right next to it and, if its available, enable your audience to read it with a single click.
