TAGGING

Utilizing The Wisdom Of Social Networks To Enhance Your Library Services.

TAGGING

  • Remember the “Big Red Books” LCSH?

    assign your own

    subject headings

    and search words

    that are natural to

    you.

TAGS

  • Like subjects, keywords or categories used to describe “things.”

  • *Books *Pictures *Movies/DVDs

  • *Web sites *Songs/CDs*Articles

  • Created by YOU and how YOU think to describe them (not necessarily a defined set of subject terms).

COST?

  • Up to 200 books = FREE

  • 1 year unlimited = $10

  • Lifetime unlimited = $25

Tagging

OrganizationalPricing

  • Book clubs, knitting clubs, etc. For now, use a personal account. In the future, Library Thing will add some "group" features so members can have separate accounts but one joined library.

  • Non-profit and not-for-profit organizations (small libraries, churches, clubs, schools, classrooms). Free up to 200 books.

    $15/year for up to 5,000 books.


Tagging

PRIVACY and SHARING

  • What information do I need to give up?

  • None. Setting up an account only requires a username and a password. Do not even need an email address.

  • What if I don't want everyone to see what I have in my collection?

  • You can always choose to make your collection private under the "Edit your profile" on your profile page.
