AquaBrowser Goes Web 2.0

AquaBrowser, the undisputed leader in visual faceted search announced the creation of My Discoveries a new Web 2.0 platform. The service offers "lists that users can make for themselves or make public to help others", it also gives the option of "tagging, reviewing and scoring on any item" and the creation of personal profiles.

"With over 200 library customers worldwide, AquaBrowser now gives library patrons and professionals alike the kind of features they are familiar with in social networking websites.
If the library is made for the community, it can also be made by the community. "

I like the idea of forming a new worldwide virtual library community with all the libraries
using AquaBrowser.

Queens Borough Public Library, where I work now is an early adopter of AquaBrowser's faceted technology, which basically divides a search into subtopics of suggestions and associations. " AquaBrowser Library compares a user's search terms to the metadata in your catalog to create a visual map (a "word cloud")"
