Library 2.0 : Week 7

Social Cataloguing

This week we are learning about social cataloguing.  Sharing book loves and hates online.  I currently use Goodreads for reviewing and keeping track of what I read.  This site is great because I can keep track of when I read a book, what I thought of it, and what others think of it.  For this course, I went over to LibraryThing and set up an account there.  This site would be a great spot for libraries to turn to for reviews and to see what other libraries are saying about books and such.  I like the idea of integrating a LibraryThing account into the regular library catalogue.  I look forward to exploring these sites more.
