I don't have much of a background in programming, but I do have a bit of one in libraries. This was my final paper for a graduate course from last semester. I'm curious to hear from other people in the library and programming fields about the viability of the idea. Is it useful, feasible, doable? The basic idea is to automatically attach search terms to library items that end up being used because of those search terms. I'd love to hear what you think!
Wired thought they would rile people up by ranking Star Trek characters. But, they just provided a list. No links with context or further info. So I've done that. Mainly I wanted to fiddle with a heroku app and learn Bootstrap. Please enjoy my really cruddy looking "app." I want to continue to work on it until it looks nice. Most of the links work. I may have missed one or two. It's an ongoing journey.
