The Coolest Thing I Learned Today

was obviously not in my Software Risk Analysis/Assessment class, instead it was this absolutely cool tool I picked up via a post on Boing Boing. It allows you to create a link to your library that you store on your browser toolbar - then when you're looking at a book in Amazon, you click the link and it swirls you away to an ISBN lookup at your library. I used it today to reserve a few books that were on my Amazon wishlist. If you use Ramsey County, you may have an issue as their IPAC system falls into the caveat of using ISBNE, so you have to do some manual configuration, but it's well worth it.
