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 http://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
