The *iHub_ Virtual Library Catalogue


Jessica and Tosh

Hey there green members Tosh and I would like to welcome you all to the *iHub_. We would also like to unveil our library catalogue for you to peruse. We have some of the hottest design and tech books that may require shades to view them (hint pic above). The green members will be eligible to read these books within the iHub for now. More goodies on their way :)

    Hey guys, this is great.
    I think it is a good idea to keep the books to be read-only (no borrowing) because :
    - it is good to have people in
    - it makes sure ALL the books are always available

    Now, I know this great software for cataloging books
    It will save the secreatry / librarians a lot of work for 18$. Just hook up a mac mini there with a USB webcam as barcode reader, and here you go, you have a whole library admin up-to-date, database etc… !!!
