Folks may already have seen the list of top love stories we put out yesterday for St. Valentine’s day. It was pulled together very quickly by JD Shipengrover and Diane Vizine-Goetz.
This one is quite nice and we are pleased with the response.
It is programmatically generated and based on a fiction subset of Worldcat(which includes movies); it is FRBRized so it is at the work level and consolidates editions etc; the items are identified by genre data in the MARC records; and it is ranked by holdings.
We are going to do more lists in future.
