UofT Library Catalogue developer here! Thanks for the feedback so far.
We're finding this a very useful exercise ahead of the start of term
next week. The more bugs we can fix, the better!
A few specific comments:
- Having the Record Title in the browser title is a great idea. That'll
go live in the next update
- In terms of licensing, we're looking into possibly using an MIT or
Apache style license, but suffice it to say that you can absolutely take
down a bit (does it ever?), we'll be investigating putting up the entire
project on github.
- Any Windows phone users out there? That's a rare commodity around
here, so we haven't had much chance to test the site on that platform at
all. It'd be great if someone with a Windows phone/tablet had any feedback.
