LibraryThing

Miriam Elizabeth Burstein pointed me in direction of Library Thing. Sheesh, just what I needed when I have a language exam and oral comps coming up in the next few months. But I'm too much of a book geek to ignore it. In fact, I had just started doing it myself using MS Access, now I won't have to. Caleb McDaniel comments that it will be more valuable when the data becomes exportable, but hopefully that's only a matter of time. I'll have to keep repeating the mantra: "Time management, time management, time management."

LibraryThing currently exports to CSV, with XML coming (probably today). Bibliographic exporting is on the horizon, as is article-tracking. LT improves every day. Today I added "graphical shelf" views and Amazon.jp support.

It's great to see LT mentioned among historians. (I majored in History at Georgetown and did three years of Classics/ancient history at UMich — check out some of my historiography books.)

That's great! Keep up the good work and I will check out your historiography books.
