What is this bookshelf support called?

I just moved into a new house. The original owner built some very lovely bookcases, but there aren't enough shelves for my needs. Yes, I know, I have too many books. My wife agrees with you.

Nonetheless, I need to add some shelves. What is this type of support called? Anyone know a site that sells them? Local hardware store only had pin style supports.

The track is called a shelf standard. The thing in your hand is a shelf support or shelf support clip or support clip.
