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, they're mostly sorted, mostly sitting on our South wall shelf.
+
Here's a rough description of what books can be found where.
+
 
+
Sections:
+
 
+
# Small black shelf on west side of library
+
## Kids' books
+
## RPG books
+
## General interest, how-to
+
 
+
# Taller shelf on west side
+
# Politics, philosophy, fiction, art
+
 
+
# North wall
+
## Graphics programming books at top and along the east side
+
## Math and science
+
## Computer and Internet culture
+
## Programming Languages, Hacking
+
## Computer Science books
+
## Operating systems
+
## Network
+
 
+
# North wall near electronics area
+
## Electronics books
+
## Parts catalogs
+
 
+
==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
+
 
+
==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.
+
 
+
====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.
+
* 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.
+
 
+
====Low Priority====
+
* Integration with [http://openlibrary.org 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.
+
 
+
===Possible Solutions===
+
* Writing it ourselves
+
* [http://koha.org/ Koha] Currently being used at [http://www.hackerbotlabs.com/ Hackerbot Labs]
+
* [http://www.librarything.com/ Librarything]
+
* Evergreen? http://open-ils.org/
