"Whether you’re a mashup novice or a seasoned pro, this work will expand your techie toolkit, and help you wow customers with customized blends of data."
— Peter Bromberg, Assistant Director, South Jersey Regional Library Cooperative

This unique book is geared to help any library keep its website dynamically and collaboratively up-to-date, increase user participation, and provide exemplary web-based service through the power of mashups.

Nicole C. Engard and 25 contributors from all over the world share definitions, tools, techniques, and real life applications. Examples range from ways to allow those without programming skills to make simple website updates, to modifying the library OPAC, to using popular sites like Flickr, Yahoo!, LibraryThing, Google Maps, and Delicious to share and combine digital content.

"A must-read for librarians interested in remixing and reusing content that includes spot-on chapters with practical details to extend our data into our users' worlds. You’ll find easy to follow steps for adding value, making use of media and jumpstarting the tired OPAC."
— Michael Stephens, Assistant Professor, Dominican University GSLIS
