"LibraryThing" on Edwards Library online Catalog

What is LibraryThing? -- LibraryThing is an online service to help people catalog their own books easily. You can access your catalog from anywhere, even on your mobile phone! Because everyone catalogs together, LibraryThing also connects people with the same books, and comes up with suggestions for what to read next. Check it out at http://www.librarything.com.

Now our online catalog has incorporated some major features of LibraryThing. You will see suggestions for similar books when you search for books in our catalog. There is also a "tag cloud," which is a fancy way of looking at more subjects for topics that might interest you.

Give it a try and let us know what you think!
