Libdex is an index of libraries from around the world created by Bisca Investments. The site contains basic information about the libraries, such as their size, operating hours, and catalog software vendors. Links to a library's public web catalog are also included for some entries. Users can contribute updated information to the site by clicking the "update" hyperlink under a library entry.
Users can choose to search for libraries through a keyword search form on the homepage of the website (and in the upper right corner of each page of the site). The form supports name, keyword, or item number searches.. Users can also select the "Libraries" tab to browse through a list of countries, states, and cities. A hierarchical list appears at the top of each page, so users can navigate back to the city, state, or country list.
Data listed for each library includes:
- Phone number/fax
- Hours of operation
- Library information: type, web catalog, system vendor, number of items, and description
Users can update information on the site by selecting the "Update" hyperlink on a specific library record or selecting the "Add Library" option on the top menu to create a new record.
