How do I add a new book to the library?[edit]
- Find the book on Open Library
- If the book is not there, create an account and add the book (2 minutes)
- Add the book's OLID number to our catalog: http://library.noisebridge.net/new/
- You will see a green bar when successful
- The Secret Code is on a sign in the library.
- Press the SUBMIT button!!
Searchable Catalog / library-org[edit]
We have a website to help find books: http://library.noisebridge.net
Capabilities:
- search - substring search by title, author, or subject
- new - add a new book
- explore - see all books in a random order
- all - see all books at once
- (toggle) - to see subjects on the right side
Library: What's the point?[edit]
There's already a public library!
Since there's a public library, we're going to focus on books that fill the needs of people using the space right now.
Anyone can access what they want over the internet almost all the time!
If electronic books are already accessible, we can focus on the people who would still prefer to use a paper copy.
A more refined goal:
The mission of the library is to serve technical or hacker-y literature to people in Noisebridge right now.
How do we get there? Quantify, Expand, Prune!
- First: Know what books we have. (done)
- Second: Create a process to acquire books that fill the library's mission. (we need a lot)
- Third: Prune our shelves a bit. Bring the average usefulness up. (needs work)
What can I do?[edit]
Lots of help is needed! There are 3 major things to do:
- Initiative 1: Improve the collection: Collect sets of topic books from experts and source these books
- Initiative 2: Add "topic"-based color on spine labelling system to library
- Initiative 3: Improve [1] [2]
Things To Do[edit]
Initiative 1: Source New Books
- Are you really good at something or reasonably well read? Make us a list of must-have books!
- Add themed lists here: [[3]]
- You can help acquire books by sourcing books on these lists!
- Don't subtract them from the lists, we can make a system for checking them off
- Who will give us great books? Anyone. Mailing list?
Initiative 2: Label by topic!
- Label all books already in library-org with subject "color" on the spine.
- Add: moveable magnetic labels you can slide paper into
Initiative 3: Improve library-org
- library-org is a Flask app
- Current capabilities: receive new books, substring search, add location to each book, register new locations.
Other Hackerspaces with Libraries[edit]
- Hackerbot Labs Koha?
- LVL1
- ACKspace List in a Wiki
- Bridgewire Dead Tree setup
- Garoa Hacker Clube Koha
Bookshelf Directory[edit]
You can find where various categories of books are found by checking out the visual directories posted on the two main shelves.
The files for these directories with editable form fields:
Hacking the bookshelves[edit]
The bookshelves have LEDs that operate on the flaschen-taschen protocol. Learn more here.
How many books do we have right now?[edit]
A book barcode scannning effort was performed in October-December 2015 using noisebridge-bookscanner.
1657 books have been ingested into library-org using Open Library
IMPORTANT: If you do any of the work below, be sure to update the list to remove the ones you added.
Here is a list of the barcodes that aren't yet in library-org. Each one represents an unknown book... please solve me.

One way to solve these is to google the UPC individually and find the book it corresponds to. At least one of the books in here is available this way. Try to find out which one!!
Here is a list of ISBNs that aren't in openlibrary or library-org. The workflow to add these is to find them on amazon, type the data into OpenLibrary, then import the OLID into library-org.

Finding Books[edit]
If you want to find good books for our shelves, go to the San Francisco Public Library Steps Sale every Wednesday 11 AM to 3 PM at the SFPL main branch (civic center). Books are on sale for $1 each.
Books We Want![edit]
People with experience and opinions about various topics can add recommendations below for books we should buy for the library.
There should probably be a fourth column indicating if we have the book or not.
