Abstract

This article describes the implementation of a web-based integrated library catalogue system at the National Print Museum, Dublin. The library catalogue was built using LibraryThing, a web-based, low cost, user friendly social networking cataloguing tool that allows development of a library’s assets as well as an online platform for sharing other libraries’ collections. The benefits of using LibraryThing as a valid resource for libraries with limited budgets and staffing constraints are considered.
