= Searchable Catalog / library-org= We keep an online catalog of books in a LibraryThing collection: https://www.librarything.com/catalog/noisebridge/yourlibrary Capabilities: # search - substring search by title, author, subject, or a number of other fields # explore - see a list of all books, ordered by title, author, publication date, or entry date # connect - Click on a particular book or author to see more information about them, collected by other users in the LibraryThing network # new - add a new book (must be logged in to the Noisebridge account to do this! Ask Liz Henry or Milo Kim for the login info) See the LibraryThing homepage for more info about its capabilities: https://www.librarything.com/ == How To Scan Books Into LibraryThing == # Install the LibaryThing app on your mobile device # Go from the app’s main page to “Add to Catalog” # Check the book to see if it has a barcode you can scan. It should be either on the back, or (more rarely) on one of the inside covers. If it is, go to step 4. Otherwise, skip ahead to step 7 # Go from “Add to Catalog” to “Scan” by hitting the barcode symbol in the top right corner # Move your camera so that the book’s barcode is in the box. You should see a new entry with the book’s title pop up; as soon as you do, move quickly on to the next book. You can scan multiple books at once this way, so I usually just line up several books side-by-side and scan them all in quick succession. #* Warning: the scanner can be EXTREMELY finicky and sensitive, so you might end up making duplicate entries of the same book by accident. From the scanning page, go to “Review” and check that you only scanned the books you wanted to scan; if there are any new duplicates or other bad entries, swipe left on them to delete them. # If the book doesn’t have a barcode to scan, it should usually still have an ISBN number (a 13-digit code, sometimes with an ‘X’ appended to it) written on the back cover (or at least the copyright page). Enter that into the search bar at the top of the “Add to Catalog” page, select the entry that looks like your book, and hit “Add to Catalog”. # All done! Your book(s) is/are now saved in the LibraryThing catalog. ==2022 Initiatives== As of July 2022, much of the information we have about the library is severely out of date, both in this wiki and in LibraryThing. Milo Kim is starting an initiative to re-catalog all the books and organize them into helpful categories. Right now, you can help by picking a shelf to work on (the physical shelves should still be labeled #1-10, starting with the shelves closest to the lounge), putting your name here, and then scanning each book on that shelf into LibraryThing by following the steps above. ===Shelves to Catalog=== # Milo - cataloged 7/2/22 # Milo - cataloged 7/16/22 # Milo - cataloged 8/10/22 # TBA # TBA # TBA # TBA # TBA # TBA # TBA
