Kautetzky, Maximilian; Haas, Benedikt; Voit, Matthias; Burghardt, Manuel; Wolff, Christian

With the increase of digital information practices (e.g. online search, desktop
publishing, electronic reference management, etc.) in the academic context,
printed books are sometimes cumbersome to integrate into the digital workflow.
We present ResearchSherlock, an Android app that allows the user to
quickly gather bibliographic information for a printed book by scanning its
shelfmark or ISBN. The application also provides recommenddations for
thematically related books, to promote the discovery of other relevant books
that are available in the local library.
