Library Thing December 22, 2006Posted by Michael McVey in Online Tools.
Yesterday I discovered a great site on the web called LibraryThing.com in which you can record and categorize all the books in your home library with incredible ease. A few clicks of the title or authors and you will be given a collection of close matches. A click later and you will have an image of the book if available and bibliographic data as well. You can tag the books with terms that are meaningful to you. My most often used tags are CanLit, Technology, and Education. They are a little broad but that was all I wanted.
The neat thing is that this site works like other social book marking sites in that you can see who else has tagged your books, find related titles you might not have considered, read comments from other readers of your books, and rank the books in your collection.
I’m even noted as an author who used Library Thing. Check it out.
