Our library is in the early stages of having an AquaBrowser® overlay added to our database software. This is a very exciting development because the social aspect of the catalogue will I’m sure be welcomed by patrons. Patrons will be able to interact with the database by making reading lists, they will be able to see what others thought of the item, they can view cover art, write reviews, etc. etc.
The AquaBrowser® interface will assist patrons in finding the library’s resources more quickly and efficiently. (At least we hope so).
Do you use AquaBrowser? I’d be interested in hearing from anyone who is currently using an AquaBrowser overlay. Do you like it? What are its main advantages/disadvantages?
