Library listings from WorldCat added to pic2shop iPhone app
"iPhone users can now download the free pic2shop application to scan book barcodes and find local libraries who have them through WorldCat. The pic2shop app is one of the original mobile apps designed for consumers who like to comparison shop. Users scan a book barcode with their iPhone, and can compare costs to get the book at various retailers or now a local library. The app uses the WorldCat Search API and WorldCat Registry APIs to deliver results for libraries nearby who hold the item in WorldCat, the world's largest library catalogue. Location and mapping information is also available"
