So much for convenience

I noted my annoyance at the old online catalog for APL earlier this year. The catalog no longer keeps banker’s hours, which is nice, but the new catalog breaks my LibraryLookup bookmarklet and the extensive research (10 minutes) that I spent trying to see if I could get it to work were for naught. Anybody else tried getting Jon Udell’s glorious hack to work with this particular brand of online catalog? Am I going to have to go back to doing searches by hand? The horror. I wish I’d realized that this was broken last week as I had a meeting that included the librarian for my local branch of APL. I need to send her an e-mail anyway, now I have two reasons.

P.S. My research led me to the interesting little tidbit that Jon Udell was a panellist at SXSW 2004 on the merits of his cool little hack. I’m sorry I missed out on that one.
