I have started becoming a librarian since being on LT. I have managed to put in more than 5,000 items into my catalog. I do put in things like maps and calendars, as well as books, if they have an ISBN number.
I have started filling in the Common Knowledge entries for the lesser known authors and books in my collections. Tim Spalding, who is the genesis of the site, challenged us to put in the gender of authors, and also dates of birth and death (if applicable). So, I've progressed through a lot of my books, so that I only have some 200 authors to put gender in for, a lot more for births, as these are a lot harder to find. Library of Congress really has only about half of the authors in its catalog with births, and about a quarter with dates of death. I've progressed to looking up Wikipedia articles on authors and giving links, as well as author's only web sites. Some people I have found where they went to college, places they lived in, organizations they belong to, awards, etc.
You can get really get caught up in LT.
Welcome to the club.
For the internet, my wife and I have become pretty much attached to DSL.
I guess I should make response, but you already know that I am functioning. I have cataloged some 5600 items. I am spending a fair amount of time filling in Common Knowledge (CK) items for authors. Tracking down birth (and death) dates for authors whose books were written over 30 years ago is a considerable challenge, when Worldcat and LOC have no idea. There are no blogs or websites for those who are six feet under.
But what about the rest of these people?
P.S. You have earned yourself a lot of nice shiny badges. Thank you for all the work you've been doing.
I just finally remembered that I'd joined LibraryThing years ago, and then finally dredged up my password (which LT refused to email to me for some reason) from the depths of memory.
Anyway, I am now here . . . again.
