Open Library Concepts

www.yoursmineours.info/

Here’s a great open library concept: In order to borrow, you must lend. I think this goes back to what lending libraries ought to be: people sharing things because they want to, while not dealing with institutions, but with other people. Maybe our institutions are too impersonal, but I feel like this goes back to the uniqueness of collections, beyond LibraryThing. Thanks to LibraryProjects for posting about it.
