LibraryThing has launched the mobile app Library Anywhere. This is a super way for libraries to enable their mobile catalog without having to invent their own wheel. The app is free for users, works with most OPAC systems and features a simple interface. Libraries can instantly create a mobile presence (for a subscription fee) and users can enjoy the benefits of placing holds and searching for materials from anywhere. Truly amazing. Thanks LibraryThing!

Findability is “the degree to which a particular object is easy to discover or locate” (Peter Morville, 2005, Ambient Findability) My first after school job was in the public library. I developed an appreciation of the Dewey Decimal system and never looked back, except for that whirlwind decade in advertising… Luckily, a digital asset management project at DDB reignited my interest in library and information sciences. I quickly obtained an MLIS and a position as a Digital Asset Manager administering a system for a high profile client following several awesome metadata projects and an internship at a worldwide media giant. My information related interests include taxonomy, metadata, cataloging, digitization, search, social media, digital asset management, emerging technologies and visual resources. Call me the Space Age Librarian, Visual Resource Manager, Content Specialist, Cataloging and Metadata Librarian or Digital Asset Management Expert.
