Tagging and Social Networking with Books

I recently discovered Library Thing, an online service to help people catalog their books.

Here are some of the features of Library Thing:

  • You add books by searching Amazon and other libraries.
  • You can use Library Thing to find people with similar libraries and get suggestions from people with your interests.
  • You can also add tags to your books and find books by tags. (just like and Flickr)
  • You can learn more about a user by clicking on their user profile.

There are so many more features about this website. To find out more about Library Thing, check out About Library Thing .

Some questions to think about:

  • How can web designers/technologists use Library Thing?
  • How can educators use Library Thing?
  • How can non-profits use Library Thing?
