This app, originally codenamed “BookWorms”, was designed as part of the autumn 2012 User Driven Innovation project – a collaboration between the University of Oslo Library and Department of Informatics – where students innovate services for students. The student group consisted of Jeongyun Choi, Lena Drevsjø, Saq Imtiaz, Hilde Bakken Reistad, and Therese Slang. During spring 2013 the group developed the design into a working app, with support from Kyrre Traavik Låberg and Dan Michael O. Heggø at the Science Library.
The app Icon is designed by Yvonne Edvartsen.
