What

Bookcrossing is an online platform where you can register books and release them into the world. People can log whenever they encounter one of the books, so that books are tracked. We started adding books from our collection to bookcrossing. It serves multiple purposes:

  • Get rid of unused books
  • Share knowledge
  • Have an online list of books we actually have
  • Get more people acquainted with NURDspace

Books that we already entered can be found here.

Labels

We are out of bookcrossing labels. We could:

  • Order labels
  • Make labels

But! We can just print labels from Nurdbot:

!bclabel <BCID>

Where BCID is the BookCrossing ID (including hyphen), for instance:

!bclabel 669-15157999

Add book to bookcrossing

  • Login to bookcrossing (ask Niz for account details)
  • Register book
  • Put label in book
  • Put book in designated section in our book shelves (see project picture)

Release book (give it away)

Only for books that have status Available. Some books we do not want to leave have a different status.
