Introducing my new project: Quelology organizes books

Permanent link

For about half a year I've been working on a website called quelology, which collects book series and translations.

It is intended to answer questions of the form: I've now read "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix", which is the next book in that series? or What's the name of the French translation of that book?

The website and data mining behind it are written in Perl, and it is based on book meta data by isfdb, amazon and worldcat.

I'm working on importing data from more sources, next up will be the Swedish National Library.

After completing the data mining stage, I'll add an interfaces that allows the visitor to edit the book, series and translations data, so that users can extend the data body.
