Abstract

Shelf browsing is a great way to find related books, but how do we bring that real-world discovery experience into the OPAC? One solution is to enhance the item page with a "virtual bookshelf" of those neighboring items, using their cover images. I will demo the Related Items Bookshelf, an open source project that won last year’s ELympics prize, designed for easy installation into Tomcat WebVoyage. I’ll also share early feedback and patron usage behavior.
