Abstract

Ryerson University Library has developed its award winning (2013 CLA recipient for innovative technology) “Book Finder” web application capable of mapping an items physical location down to the exact shelf it is located on. Designed with flexibility in mind, this program is capable of mapping and displaying all sorts of unique content and collections by identifying a contents type (DVD, Books, Reserve, etc..) and applying rules to only search material within that context. In April 2013, we open-sourced our application on Github to share with the community. We encourage institutions to further develop and contribute improvements back so that the entire community will benefit.
