Australian Libraries using Librarything for Libraries

There are a few more libraries in OZ now using Librarything for Libraries. I love Librarything and use it to search for new authors, reviews and recommendations.
LibraryThing for Libraries enriches the online catalog with Library 2.0. tools
Just as a point of interest, LibraryThing has over 32 million books catalogued and is larger than the Library of Congress!!
They have also made images of book covers of a million books available for anyone to use for free!

Starting IE7 with multiple tabs

In an effort to make it easier for staff at work on the circulation desk I have found a useful tool available in IE7. We start each day with Tabs for the following: catalogue enquiry search, pc booking page, PLAIN, Libraries Australia and Google search.

At home I start with: iGoogle, Google BlogSearch, my blog, and my facebook

multiple homepages
