AquaBrowser, a VISUAL library catalog, offers a semantic link among books. (I think I only saw books over here at Sno-Isle Libraries' Visual Catalog). I'm still playing with it - typed "knitting" - played there and went to "yarn" and to "fiber" and to "pattern" and to .... You get the idea. This is how I used to play in the old library catalogs (lots of running between file drawers) and now in the online catalogs. But this MOVES and has color. I would like an indication of volume of content - so if there are LOTS of pattern books, make "pattern" darker or bigger...more like a tag cloud.
