The contest is intended to encourage innovation and development of Web-based services for libraries and library users.
Contestants will be challenged to think differently about their environments by working with deconstructed functional components of library services.
Contestants must bring up a working prototype.
The winning entry will be interesting and clearly demonstrate to judges why it will help libraries and/or library users. Other than a specification to include one of a variety of available OCLC resources, contestants are free to implement whatever they wish.
The prize is $2,500.00 US.
Full details are available on the contest Web site.
