Smart mobs helping small libraries: Flash Mob Cataloging
March 2nd, 2009

(Thanks to Eingang!)

LibraryThing is encouraging a new use of flash mobs — Flash Mob Cataloging — to mobilize the power of groups to help small libraries scan their collections:

Flash-Mob Cataloging is when a horde of LibraryThing members descend on some small library with laptops and CueCat barcode scanners, catalog their books in LibraryThing, eat some pizza, talk some talk and leave them with a gleaming new LibraryThing catalog.

The goal? To help organizations with small libraries get their catalogs online using LibraryThing, in a fun and sociable way. Find out more:
