Check out an interactive Google map of Libraries affected by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita created by former University of South Carolina School of Library and Information Science Professor Bob Molyneux and his colleagues at Sirsi. It uses the Normative Data Project for Libraries from Sirsi and info from the GeoLib project.
Public Libraries Affected by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita
Take a look at the project as a whole at http://www.libraryndp.info. The goal of the Normative Data Project for Libraries (NDP) is to compile transaction-level data from libraries throughout North America; to link library data with geographic, demographic, and other key types of data; and, thereby, to empower library decision-makers to compare and contrast their institutions with real-world industry norms on circulation, collections, finances, and other parameters.
Do you think this could be a valuable project? Take a look at which libraries are participating so far.
