You’re in a strange city and need a nice, clean place to use the Internet and get the latest news. What do you do? Go to a local coffee shop? I said a nice, clean place. How about the library! Library Finder is perfect for you. Library Finder allows you to find libraries near you anywhere in the world.
Library Finder uses the WorldCat Registry API to identify libraries near a given location via latitude and longitude found in the Registry. Additionally, when available, it is uses the Registry API to display the contact information, website, and library type for a given library. The application also uses the HTML5 Geolocation API in supported browsers to determine where a user is. Finally Library Finder uses a CSS3 technique, Responsive Web Design, to make the website fully mobile friendly. (Supports FF6+, Safari, Chrome, or IE9+)
