The lib-web-cats directory of libraries has been created as a component of Library Technology Guides, primarily through the personal efforts of its creator, Marshall Breeding. This resource aims to be a major public directory of libraries and the definitive resource for tracking the technology products used by libraries. The creation of lib-web-cats represents over a fifteen year's worth of work in gathering data about libraries and the automation products used.
Lib-web-cats is provided on the Web for use for all non-commercial purposes without charge. The directory aims to be as complete and accurate as possible, but Marshall Breeding or other individuals associated with Library Technology Guides are not responsible for any damages or losses associated with the use of the lib-web-cats database.
Many libraries make use of lib-web-cats for identifying peer institutions during the procurement of technology products. If your library finds lib-web-cats to be beneficial to your procurement process, consider making a donation to Library Technology Guides.
Organizations or individuals that make commercial use of lib-web-cats are expected to make voluntary financial contributions. Examples of commercial use include using the resource for competitive intelligence, identifying potential contacts, or any marketing activities. The amount of the contributions for commercial use are flexible, and will vary according to the size of the organization, the level of activity, and the type of use involved.
