  • ;-) Very interesting
    Have a glance to http://www.slideshare.net/Foudyl/yoolib-digitallibrarystateofthear
    Yoolib can be linked to these library management software because
    people don't want to read results, they want to explore works, use it and share it.
    Digital library software today have to be user centrics like YooLib .
