ChiliPAC is a set of library catalog enhancements built around library users, their booklists, bookshelves and sharing them. This enables user-curated reading list sharing that way categorizing and making easier to find proper reads, and for librarians - to provide reading lists in much easier way, and reuse already created lists of own and other librarians.
ChiliPAC works with all major catalogs and to set it up, it requires effort or knowledge on library's side.
If your library does not have it, please contact us for us to propose a demo of ChiliPAC to your library.
There are only 3 kinds of bookshelves:
and you can add only items from your library's catalog. By default bookshelves are private, but you can choose to share your boookshelves with others and get a permanent URL for that, e.g., https://borrow.bklynlibrary.org/bookshelf/4dpLz
On the other hand Booklists:
Booklists also can be private or public, you can read more about them here.
To start, you do not have to do anything specific. If your library's catalog has ChiliPAC installed, just do a search in the catalog and click on “Add to booklist” or “Add to bookshelf” buttons in catalog, and once you log on to your library account with username/barcode and PIN - you will see the items added to your account that you can see in “My profile”.
