Another opportunity to enter the 21st century falls by the wayside while we condescend to our user base. To take this concept further, you could actually make fairly useful reviews for specific communities. If this was to be used in a University setting, say, you could require the reviewer to log in, then using LDAP, determine if the user is faculty, undergrad, postdoc, etc. You could then have user reviews based on a particular community. Faculty could lend an air of credibility to a particular item, graduate students could help each other and undergrads could write "OMG D00D, U T0TLY CAN R1P TH1$ 0FF 4 ENGL1$H 101!!!!!". All very helpful in their own way. Conceivably these reviews could be aggregated from other peer institutions (if a relation like ISBN or ISSN or something is established) to further pad your content. I think it's a fine idea, maybe not to include in the default view of the ILS, but possibly for a more personalized view. -Ross.
