The objective of The Libhub Initiative is to publish BIBFRAME resources to the web, cross-link resources which are common among libraries, and, through cross-linking improve the ability for people to discover these resources on the open Web. The goal is ultimately that users would then be able to click on appropriate resources and be taken back to the library’s catalog.

StackLife lets you browse all of the items in Harvard’s 73 libraries and Book Depository as if they were on a single shelf. It’s built on a few core ideas: 1.

The default stack shows the item in its primary subject classification. But since most works have been classified under more than one subject heading, you can click on any of those headings and see it grouped with those neighbors. 3. Every book has some community relevance StackLife heat-maps books to reflect how often they’ve been checked out, put on reserve, called back early from a loan, etc. Also, it’s not just books. StackLife lets you browse among all of Hollis’ catalog, including DVDs and CDs. - greg hardin
