Hooking Amazon Up to the Austin Library

Jon Udell's come up with a really cool bookmarklet; when your on a book's description page at Amazon or other online booksellers, this can tell you if it's available at your local public library. It works best from the entries for hardback editions, since they have different ISBNs than the paperback versions.

Details on setting up your bookmarklet are at http://weblog.infoworld.com/udell/stories/2002/12/11/librarylookup.html. The Austin Public Library uses the DRA system and is linked off Jon's pages, but I can't reproduce the bookmarklet in this posting since LiveJournal strips JavaScript off its postings.
