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. JD and Jeremy wrote a nice application that uses the geo-location service to identify the libraries near you – LibraryFinder.

You should try it. And if you like it you should say so on the 10K apart page in the comments.

Jim coordinates the OCLC Research office in San Mateo, CA, focuses on relationships with research libraries and work that renovates the library value proposition in the current information environment.
