Virtual Bookshelf

The Virtual Bookshelf is a JavaScript library, developed by the Curtin University Library, for showcasing and browsing library resources online. The code is designed to work on both desktop and mobile browsers in Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Opera, and IE8 and above. Some live examples can be found at:
