Hackathon towards an Open Library Index

A few artist's organizations have come together as the Umbrella group to collaborate on spaces and projects. As part of this, we plan to index all the books in our various collections, and enable access to them. We're using http://openlibrary.org to enter data about the books and associate them with groups / people that own them.

We're hosting a hackathon at CAMP ( http://camputer.org/directions.html ) on Saturday 9th Feb, 3pm onwards.

The broad agenda is to build an open platform for book-sharing in the city.

The plan is, to start with, build a simple website to find books you're looking for and who to contact to get access to them, using the openlibrary.org API, but is completely open to ideas to facilitate
sharing of things, both digital and analog.

The event also marks solidarity with Aaron Swartz.

If this seems interesting, bring your laptop / coding device and come :) - wifi, food etc. shall be provided.

Please circulate if you know anyone who maybe interested.
