It's not uncommon for users to mix up a library's OPAC and website and why not? Gone are the days when a database of any description was kept distinct from it's host website. In fact, libraries are some of the worst offenders in terms of drawing artificial lines between services.

So it's of real interest to me that Darien Library has just launched it's combined website/OPAC. Essentially they've built a Drupal module that ties, via a connector, to any ILS - more here. It's a really neat move, and one which I'm sure we'll all be watching with interest.
