Interesting Libraries

In a recent post on Facebook Shauna Hicks indicated that she had joined Librarything and was having fun entering her books.

I have previously blogged about Librarything, those posts are here, here, here and here. I am always excited when one of my genimates shares my excitement for this product which is a super tool for managing one's personal libraries, books and reading.

Librarything is not just for individuals it can be used to record, catalogue and share the holdings of society and institutional libraries. Some Australian and NZ ones that I have found are:

ANZAC Room Library - RSL Tweed Heads - Coolangatta Sub-Branch

The Bishopdale Branch of the New Zealand Society of Genealogists

Cairns & District Family History Society

Cairns & District Family History Society on Librarything

Cairns and Far North Environment Centre

Lake Macquarie & District Historical Society

Museum of Chinese Australian History Research Library

Stockton Historical Society

Tamborine Mountain Family History Group

Why don't you hop over and explore Librarything. You can visit the links above or visit my account here while Shauna's very new one is here

Jill, Good Reads is a great online spot to list books as well.

Thanks Colleen. Librarything is a habit now. I subscribed to LT long before Good Reads appeared and alathough I gave it a try I stuck with what I was used to. They are both useful resources.
