BIB - Greasemonkey Script) - Exemple de liens entre Un service de liste de lecture - GoodReads) et le catalogue en ligne d'une Bibliothèque - Toronto Public Libary status from Goodreads book details for Greasemonkey

Inserts link on Goodreads book pages to check status at Toronto Public Library in a popup. Based on the page so it may break. When you visit a book's details page on goodreads, it searches the Toronto public library's holdings via the book's isbn13 number in advanced search. If there's a hit, it allows you to pull up listings via a clickable link for a popup.

BIB - Greasemonkey Script - Exemple - weRead Amazon Exporter for Greasemonkey - Inspects the weRead book shelf (Facebook) page on for Amazon products and displays a list of ISBN or ASIN.

I wanted to try Google's Books library which supports importing a list of comma-separated ISBNs. Since weRead doesn't support exporting your book shelf I wrote this script to show me ISBNs or ASINs parsed from the Amazon thumbnails. Instructions * From Facebook: Visit and use the Connect button to log in via Facebook Connect. * Navigate to * To export just your "Read It" list, first click the link next to "Show All Books" * To export all your books, click "100" to view as many books as possible * You'll need to export each page since this script can only see one page at a time * Use the Export command from Greasemonkey's command list

BIB - Greasemonkey Script - Exemple - Améliorer le statut d'un livre dans le catalogue en Ligne d'une Bibliothèque) - Group LAPL Holds by status for Greasemonkey

Groups Los Angeles Public Library ( holds (requests) by status: Ready for Pickup, In Transit, or Pending. Instead of just listing the holds by status, this userscript groups them by status. For holds that are Ready for Pickup it shows for each pickup date: * The number of days you have left to pick up your holds. Remember that "a $1.00 fee will be charged if an item placed on hold is not canceled or picked up by the "Hold Until" date." * The day of the week when the holds are due to be picked up * The pickup date * and the number of items to be picked up by that date. This is then followed by the items due to be picked up sorted by title. For holds that are Pending I list the items by the ratio of available # of copies to queue position. This gives you some idea of the order in which your holds will be available. If the ratio is above 1.00 you can expect the hold to be available "soon" (within 3 weeks).

BIB - Greasemonkey Script - Exemple - Relier le catalogue en ligne d'une bibliothèque et des services comme Amazon ( US, Canada, France Germany and Japan, not UK) - Amazon TorPLib Linky for Greasemonkey

Customized Carrick Mundell’s LibraryLookup Greasemonkey script for the Seattle Public Library) to do the same for the Toronto Public Library. What’s it do? On any book listing page, the script inserts a hyper-link below the book title which, when clicked, will search for the book in the Toronto Public Library catalog. the Library Search Url and Library Name are now separate variables to make it a little easier to customized for other Library Systems. It does not work for the UK site. Why? Because the UK does not use the same class element names to give it a place to insert the html rewrite link. In fact, it only uses 2 class names on the whole item page. The Style Sheet and classes are there, they just don’t use them. Weird. This particular madness was kickoff by John Udell who started the LibraryLookup Project ( in 2002 (with bookmarklet’s). Many Thanks.

The URI microformat, OpenURL and COIns, will be very interesting to library application - in "Programming" (Tricks/tips learned in daily programming work)

by 1 other
The URI microformat takes advantage of OpenURL and existing link resolver solution.It defines a convention of plugging URI metadata in HTML page. If it is adopted and widely used,now a microformat-aware application (be a greasemonkey script, or a web service) can grab the identifier and point to your local OpenURL resolver, you immediately get the copy from local library. It is very similar to COINS, but it's much simpler and cleaner, anyone can understand and use it, and its aplication can be beyond traditional research library. e.g. in a public library, you can use amazon as catalog and immediately check if it's available in local collection. COinS provides a great number of additional capabilities that URI microformat can't support. Since COinS can't be dismissed for this reason, it doesn't make sense to me to create yet another standard that does the same thing with so little savings.I will grant that the COinS is less intuitive.....

Medallia Blog: Google Print & Library Lookup Mashup - Greasemonkey Library 2.0

puts a small yellow box in the corner of your Google Print book search. The box includes a book title and a link to the library system's search results. When clicked, a new browser tab is created containing the library's lookup page with the book's location and status. The script also linkifies the library names on the latter page, to point to the library's street map, hours and phone page. This GM script acts on 2 completely separate pages. Should be relatively straightforward to alter for your own local library's book search API and map and hours.
