Internet Book List

If you've ever visited IMDB.com, you know that it's the site to visit to find information about movies, and especially about their availability in various media.

Over the past year, volunteers have begun the creation of the Internet Book List, which is an attempt to do the same for books of all kinds.

I've not have the opportunity to spend much time there yet, so I don't know how good it is. However, I do know that it's still young--the database has just reached 10,000 books, but there's a lot more to go.

For example, the delightful Sarah Caudwell is listed, but only because she's included in several anthologies in the database. None of her novels are listed yet.

They are looking for help; if you've been wanting to give back to the 'net, this would be a fine way to do it.
