Thingology (LibraryThing’s ideas blog): Danbury, CT kicks off LibraryThing for Libraries!

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jon Phipps @ 9:14 am

There are a lot of limitations, but this is still a really interesting and exciting development.

We’re happy to announce that the Danbury Library in Danbury, Connecticut has become the first library in the world to put LibraryThing for Libraries on its live catalog…

Underneath, the data comes from LibraryThing and its members. We’ve cleaned some of it up–Abby, our head librarian, and Jenny Anastasoff, a local librarian who’s intern with us, have been hunting down and excluding personal or irrelevant tags.* But its strength is the strength of LibraryThing’s people and their collections—200,000 members, 13 million books and 17 million tags.
