Eight Tools for effective explanation | explainer.net | Edumathingy | Scoop.it

Some of them are visual, interactive, or entertaining, but all of them help users easily digest intricate topics."....

Open Library (Open Library) - One web page for every book ever published

Open Library (Open Library) - One web page for every book ever published | Edumathingy | Scoop.it

One web page for every book ever published. It's a lofty but achievable goal.

 

To build Open Library, we need hundreds of millions of book records, a wiki interface, and lots of people who are willing to contribute their time and effort to building the site.

 

To date, we have gathered over 20 million records from a variety of large catalogs as well as single contributions, with more on the way.

 

Open Library is an open project: the software is open, the data are open, the documentation is open, and we welcome your contribution. Whether you fix a typo, add a book, or write a widget--it's all welcome. We have a small team of fantastic programmers who have accomplished a lot, but we can't do it alone!
