Today’s question, from Wendi’s Book Corner: Prior to today, were you aware of Open Shelves Classification? Have you helped to classify any books yet? Is this something you are interested in? Did you know that if you classify any books, it will also show you who else has classified the book?
I was aware of the Open Shelves project when it started. It sounded really interesting and, to be honest, something else about LibraryThing that would annoy my librarian buddies. I have a few online pals who are librarians and who have expressed great dismay over people beng able to tag their own books and make their own classifications. It is one of my very favorite things about LibraryThing, so I always enjoy pointing out all the librarians on LT and the interesting things they are doing. What I didn’t realize is that they are far enough along that you can classify books! I think that’s terrific and I will definitely be spending a little time classifying some of my favorites.
