## Contents |

## [edit] Books!

If you use a book or like it, and want to make sure it doesn't get weeded, please write your name or something indicative of your interest on the inside front cover.

Noisebridge has a lot of them and only some of them are currently sorted and shelved. Most of them can be found in shelves and boxes on the west side of the space, near the lounge.

## [edit] Sorting

The books are currently for the most part sorted thanks to Al. Proposed systems to help keep the books mostly organized:

- Color code or number shelves and books. Books that belong on the "Yellow" shelf will have a yellow sticker on it.
- Leave it chaos
- bar codes or QR codes or library of congress index numbers

## [edit] Library Catalog

A library catalog system for Noisebridge would be awesome! Here are some requirements, adding items to this list doesn't actually mean anything.

Cataloging and checkout are separable problems.

#### [edit] High Priority

- Open source software with a nice license that wont fuck us over in the future.
- Web based.
- Quickly add books to the library via ISBN or bar code scan. patrickod is working on this here
- Book search returns the last known location of a book (such as "Green Shelf" or "Book Case 8").
- Books can have a checked out status in addition to its last known location, date of check out should be displayed.
- Users can check out books without the need to register, as in when they check out a book it'll ask for a name and email, blank entries should be allowed as anonymous.
- Users who leave an email address will get a reminder email with a list of books they have checked out once a week.

#### [edit] Low Priority

- Integration with http://openlibrary.org.
- Book search returns results with descriptions and a cover scraped from some other part of the internet.
- Library database in an open format to easily export later on.
- Ability to use a barcode scanner.

### [edit] Possible Solutions

- Writing it ourselves
- Open Source Koha Developed in NZ and open sourced as a gift to the world (koha means gift in Maori).
- LibLime Koha Free but closed Fork of Koha
- Librarything
- Evergreen Started by Georgia Public Library System -Mostly large libraries
- Obiblio

- SelfShelfSwap Alpha Code (No updates since 2012)

## [edit] Other Hackespaces with Libraries

- Hackerbot Labs Koha?
- LVL1
- ACKspace List in a Wiki
- Bridgewire Dead Tree setup
- Garoa Hacker Clube Koha

## [edit] Suggested Books

People with experience and opinions about various topics can add recommendations below for books we should buy for the library.
