LibraryThing Posts Sneak Peek of TinyCat, a New Online Catalog for “Tiny” Libraries
A new post on the LibraryThing blog provides a sneak peek at TinyCat, a new online catalog that Tim, Abby, and the rest of the LibraryThing team are formally releasing at ALA
TinyCat is designed for “tiny” libraries (collections of less than 10,000 titles) while LibraryThing for Libraries is marketed to public and academic libraries.
From the Blog Post:
These smallest libraries—churches, synagogues, small schools, community centers, academic departments, etc.—have been using LibraryThing to catalog their collections for almost a decade. That continues with TinyCat. TinyCat offers a new way to view the catalog that’s cleaner and focused on helping patrons find and discover books in your library.

Ed. Note: Smart move in our view for LibraryThing to develop an online catalog solution for a specific type of library, in this case small/tiny collections. We look forward to seeing TinyCat while in San Francisco.
