LibWorm: Search and Current Awareness for Libraryfolk

I am very bad at keeping secret anything that I’m excited about, so I am especially pleased that in the last three months, I’ve been able to keep the secret of LibWorm.com, created by MedWorm‘s Frankie Dolan and by me.

  • With LibWorm, you can search over 1100 feeds, including more than 800 biblioblogs, many LIS journal TOCs, and many other information sources of interest to libraryfolk.
  • Any search in LibWorm can be outputted as an RSS feed, so LibWorm should be a very useful way to track mentions of your favorite subjects in the biblioblogosphere and beyond.
  • You can choose to use LibWorm’s built-in aggregator by registering for an account, and this will also facilitate the social aspects of the site that will be implemented in the future.

You can go check it out now, and you may wish to read the FAQ.

Questions? Suggestions? Critiques? Compliments? Please use the contact form at LibWorm (beneath the FAQ) or email me at david[AT]libworm[dot]com. I’ll probably be answering questions about it here in posts at davidrothman.net. We’ve been working on this since mid-September, and we’re very excited to roll it out for you to play with.

If you like it, please feel free to spread the word. If you don’t like it, be sure to tell us what we can do to make it better.

  2. Very impressive! I just left a long wish list of categories I’d like to see on your marvelous new tool. Basically, I’d like to see updates on free, online file conversion tools (HTML to PDF, Word to PDF) and big file transfer programs. Those kinds of things are huge helps to little libraries. And news of Web 2.0 tools a la Solution Watch and My Uninstalled Life.

    Way to go on providing such a useful, splendid tool to the library community! Kudos to Frankie and David for selfless, skillful service above and beyond the call.
