Edith Speller – Mashable Reading Lists

December 1, 2009 at 8:55 am | Posted in Middlemash | Leave a comment

Edith described problems with existing reading lists-  often out of date – needed updating. Using Yahoo Pipes to examine current reading lists items and extract for searches on RILM database, using RSS feeds. – giving the user a list of suggested searches.  Gets feed from RSS and pull out bits of data from the feed – eg just the subject terms from the RSS feed, filter the feed for one entry per subject.

Other possibilities of using reading list  – use the ISBN to look up an Amazon style ‘ people who borrowed this book also borrowed that’, and Dave Pattern’s Mosaic API .
