Social cataloguers in health libraries? E-mail me

Cho and Hooker and I are writing an article entitled “Social cataloguing: an overview for health librarians”. What surprised me about SCSs was when Tim Spaulding sent me a list of health libraries or organizations using LibraryThing – one of the better social cataloguing sites. Where have I been on SCSs? To be honest with you dear reader: it’s been on the periphery of my awareness but I’ve been too blogged down. I should thank Hooker and Cho for bringing it to my attention. If you are on one of these SCSs – let me know, will ya? Dean
