We’ve gone live with a feature to show you a floor map with star on it, of where to find items in the stacks.
This is only available on items in one of our locations at the moment (albeit our largest), and not neccesarily every item in there either. Here’s a search which gives you some examples.
We have been relatively happy with StackMap.com for this feature; while we were not using it quite how they intended, the JSON API they provide is flexible enough to use however you like. To be sure, they are missing some features we’d like (like an API for reading and updating registered ‘locations’ and call number mappings), but it worked out. We had to use a few other features in ways not quite like they intended to fully represent our very weird local systems, which worked out too. They also provided invaluable help in actual on-the-ground charting of our call number locations.
