Library Book Rank

Have been wanting to link to this blog post since quite a while now. It introduces a very neat concept of a "Library Book Rank" or "Library Holding Rank" similar to "google page rank". I really liked this idea a lot!! It is a very interesting concept and has a lot of potential in discovering the social and cultural aspects of our readers.

Could we use this gold-mine of information in building user-context, personalization, recommendations, search etc? But how do we account for the difference in user behaviour when interacting with technology online and in libraries? Will there be a disconnect in these scenarios? I think these are very interesting questions to think about. Anyway, you can find some of my comments on it here. I really feel that it would be soooo much fun working on something like this.. what say? :)


  • This is a neat idea.

    I think that it'll be useful if we can relate book categories to the psychological profiles of people - readers of certain kinds of books may tend to be depression-free etc..
