We’re very excited to announce the “soft launch” of our brand new Open Library site! This is version 1 of a reconstructed Open Library, and we’re going to keep it “soft” at a special URL until we’re sure it’s stable enough to make the final transition to www.openlibrary.org. We’re hoping that will happen soon.
Here’s the announcement with more details on the Open Library blog: http://blog.openlibrary.org/2010/03/17/announcing-the-open-library-redesign/
So, please go and explore the new Open Library. This is just the beginning!
Enjoy! – Jeff Kaplan
