BOOK’S MARKING - The System for Finding the Books based on Location Information

Takeru Yoshihara, Michiaki Yasumura

Abstract

The Availability and use of digital books has greatly increased in recent years, and eBook technologies now allow books to be downloaded and read almost anywhere. While method of reading and experiencing books are changing, method of finding books are relatively unchanged. Most people select books based on their impression of the front cover seen in the library or bookstore, or on reviews found on the internet. In our research we have attempted to enrich the process of finding and experiencing books by developing the “Book’s Marking” system where books are linked to places. In this system, users (“editors” or “annotators”) put information about books on a shared map. In this way information about locations can be linked to the contents of books. For example, the place where the story is set, the area where the author was born, and the experiences of other readers can all be linked together. Once books are linked to places other readers can then find the books that refer to, or are associated with, places that they are interested in, or are visiting.
