Tonight I played around with "Library Thing" I believe it is a good tool for cataloging if you would like to distribute a list of books for an assignment. Teachers could type in books on various subjects and than email that list to their students to use. This concept is all part of the web 2.0 era.
I believe "Library Thing" can be very useful, however, I did not like the simplicity of this tool. I feel like the web designers could of created an easier to use search tool to find books, maybe I will get used to it with time.
