CBC Spark on ShelfLife and LibraryCloud

The CBC show Spark a couple of days ago ran an 8 minute piece about the two biggest projects coming out of the Harvard Library Innovation Lab, ShelfLife and LibraryCloud. It does a great job cutting together an interview of me with an illuminating narrative from Nora Young. (I co-direct the Lab, along with Kim Dulin, although credit for these apps goes to our team: Annie Jo Cain, Paul Deschner, Jeff Goldenson, Matt Phillips, and Andy Silva.)

Spark also has posted the full, uncut interview and a good blog post about it.

  1. Yeah I whaetcd the video, and I still don’t see what you’re talking about….“That’s the way I myself like it, and this could be catnip for academics, but all those choices could intimidate some casual users at public libraries.”All those choices??? Its a virtual book shelf…. and I still don’t understand what you mean by academics liking this more than public library users. Academics would like a very complicated search based interface, not a visual book shelf. Take it from an academic.
