Library Thing

I just learned about the neat book cataloging site Library Thing. I love how it grabs book info from so many sources. Who knew that the UNC Libraries allow external websites to grab data! Yeah UNC! The person who showed me the site today said that it works with the Duke library but the functionality wasn’t public yet. Seems there is a big debate among librarians there about sharing that data. A shame.

I am now addicted. Entering in books by hand. May buy a quecat scanner for $15 to speed stuff along. 🙂 Man I love books! My library on Library Thing is here. (or what I’ve entered so far… its going to take me a while to enter in all of them.)
