Welcome to the Self Shelf Swap's Community Wiki


Create your own library and share your books in a simple manner.
This wiki is a presentation of the project and our research. The website that host the project itself is under development.

What is Self Shelf Swap?

Self Shelf Swap's goal is to support a network of individual or small institutions libraries, in allowing anyone to create and manage his own library, and to borrow books from a common catalogue.
Our goal is to create a simple library managing system to organize your "Micro-library" and an online index that gives information about registered documents. You will be able to know where documents are physically based and their availability, and create your Micro-library DataBase and share it with other users.
We wish first to begin the project with books, but our aim is to extend it to other documents like music, films or limited editions and in a final stage to objects (artworks).
