Talis: Project Silkworm

"Currently, users of Internet services such as Google, Amazon, eBay and Yahoo are enjoying fantastic, participative experiences. Unfortunately, the same can't be said of traditional library and information systems."

The Silkworm project "is a collaborative undertaking to emulate this positive experience in the Library domain."

Read the entire White Paper here [pdf].

Talis is a UK library services company, based in Birmingham. Talis staff blog at Panlibus.

And there's a site for the Silkworm project as well as a Silkworm blog.

Our colleague Lorcan Dempsey has a post about Silkworm, greasemonkey and the OCLC service, xISBN. And there are a couple of other good posts on Silkworm here and here.
