A colleague sent me this link and I just had to share it.
“The Internet Book List is an online database that was created in March, 2003 by Patrik Roos. The goal at that time was to enter as many fiction titles in the English language as possible. Steven Jeffery took over the site in December, 2003. The site does not produce any profit from its activities, and its mandate is to provide as complete and accurate information about authors and their works of fiction as possible. The information on the site is made available to the public free of charge in the form of the website.”
Why I am particularly interested in this database is the way it seems to be set up.
As a library cataloger, we are hearing about RDA,the new standard for resource description and access designed for the digital world.
This database appears to implement some of the principles outlined in RDA.
With search features available via title, author, and series, this database is useful for all fiction readers.
