NYC Libray Camp Session 2

Library Thing for Libraries

Second Session of Library Camp

  • What is Library Thing (social cataloguing too)
  • Library thing for libraries, they sell the data to libraries. (They reserve the right to do this, when you sign up as a library thing user).
  • Danbury Library first Library to use Library thing for Libraries
  • Works with any ILS
  • Possibility of licensing or providing data for free, rather than the web services.
  • Better for public libraries, not as good for special
  • Licensing data to aqua browser

Interesting, not really discussion, more a sales pitch, but interesting nonetheless.
