Open Library is an open, editable library catalog, building towards a web page for every book ever published. This repository contains cleanup bots implementing the openlibrary-client which allow developers to add/edit/remove different works/editions on Open Library.

Table of Contents

Overview

Open Library is an effort started in 2006 to create "one web page for every book ever published". It provides access to many public domain and out-of-print books, which can be read online.

git clone git@github.com:YOURACCOUNT/openlibrary-bots.git

Developer's Guide

For instructions on administrating your Open Library instance and build instructions for developers, refer the Developer's Getting Started with Bots Guide.

You can also find more information regarding Developer Documentation for Open Library in the Open Library Wiki

Typically every folder signifies a different bot. The folder must contain code with respect to the bot, a README.md file which tells the user how to run the bot and any dependecies or requirements.txt file which can make it easier for a user to run the bot.
