Updates: New Toy- Libib
Kel Wednesday, January 21, 2015I found a new bookish toy to play with! And by "toy" I mean cataloging system. (Wow, that sounded a lot less nerdy in my head.) The new toy is Libib.
|Note: I have not been asked to nor am I being compensated for talking about Libib. I just found it, thought it was cool and wanted to share.|
- You have to watch what the scanner reads a book as, because occasionally (more often with paperbacks), it's not the right one.
- The barcode on the inside cover of paperbacks gets a more accurate read than the one on the back cover.
- You can't scan everything. I have a lot of used books. Some of them have markings or stickers over the barcode; some of them are old and don't have barcodes. You have to input these manually.
- It's a time consuming process. I spent a good hour scanning in my collection last night and I still have a bookshelf and a half to go through.
If there is no picture (or one you don't like), you can upload a picture from your computer.
Three viewing options.
I seem to be in an odd reading mood (I blame winter and school application stress), so this Middle Grade fairy tale-ish story was the perfect easy read. Not too deep, and lots of fun adventure. :)
The Middle Grade madness continues. I haven't made any progress on Illusionarium or Steelheart, but I'm enjoying Omega City.
That's it for this week's happenings! Thanks for stopping in and check back tomorrow for my mini-review of The Mark of the Dragonfly by Jaleigh Johnson! In which mechanics, magic and awesome trains collide. :)
