Which libraries should you go to?
An article published on the Al Jazeera website has asked readers to nominate which library should be the next library in your city.
The question was prompted by the arrival of a new technology that enables people to save their bookmarks for later.
The idea behind the app, Bookmarks, was to provide a way for people to keep track of books and get books they want, with a single library account.
Bookmarks was launched in April this year by the online retail giant Amazon.com.
The app was developed by the company’s Seattle-based technology team, which has more than 20,000 employees in the US.
The team hopes to eventually release a version for other countries, including the UK, France, Germany and Japan.
“Bookmarks is a novel idea and the most innovative thing we’ve seen on our team to date,” the app’s team said in a statement.
“We believe it’s the future of book-sharing, for books, and for the future.”‘
We have an incredible team’ Al Jazeera asked the app team for the names of each library they would like to see receive Bookmarks.
“You’re going to need a team,” they responded.
“If you’re reading books and you want to share them, that’s what you want.”
Each library can receive up to three bookmarks, but the team said the most popular will be for the “main library”.
“Bookmarking a library is the simplest, most elegant way to share your library history with others,” the team wrote on the app.
“All you have to do is click the ‘Share Bookmarks’ button to upload your bookmarks to a shared library.”
In the meantime, the team suggested people try other options for their library’s access.
“The best way to keep your library active is to share the bookmarks on your own personal library account,” the company wrote.
“In a few hours, your library will have the bookmarked books that you have left behind.”
For the rest of us, Al Jazeera says, we can use the app to share our bookmarks as we like.
“Auburn University Library has a vibrant and diverse library,” the page reads.
“Our students can easily access a library of books from our library, and you can easily search through your library’s collections and browse through our catalog of books.”
The team suggested sharing your bookmark history with friends.
“As you browse the shelves, you’ll find some books that are new to you, some that you’ve had your eye on for a while and others that you’re new to,” it wrote.
For a library that is also a major research centre, “You might be surprised to find that there’s something in there for you,” it said.
“What you find will surprise you.”
If you want your library to receive Bookmarking, then you should go to the Auburn library, it said, adding that you can “share” your bookmarked library bookmarks by clicking the “share bookmarks” button.
The company suggested people “share library bookmarked bookmarks and search for a book you’ve never read” and then share that bookmarked account to other libraries.
“After a few days, you may even find some new books to read,” the account said.
The list of recommended libraries went on to state that, if you want access to your library, you should “be a part of a community and join a library community”.
The app also suggested people create their own bookmarks in the app and “share it with a friend or relative”. “
Once you become a part, you will have access to all the resources that other library users have access.”
