In July 2007, I set up an account on the Open Library web site so I could look under the hood a bit. Today, after a long absence from the site, I returned so I could try my hand at editing a record. If you take at look at my editing of the record for Evidence Explained, please note that I am not a cataloger but an information services librarian. I was pleased to learn recently that the CUNY library system is thinking of sharing its catalog records with Open Library (I work as a librarian at Baruch College, which is part of CUNY).
