I'm currently thinking through what pieces of the collection at the Undergrad Library at the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign (askundergrad on LT) to bring into LibraryThing. I have a few ideas, but have to sort out the workflow issues for getting the information here. I'm eager to learn how other libraries have decided to use LibraryThing

We've been using LibraryThing to promote our new accessions for the last year or so - each month I wipe our catalogue and then upload the new month's list that we get automatically generated from our catalogue. Seems to work quite well - using the batch upload facility here on LT makes it all very quick, but I don't think we make as much use of the LT features as we could. The big benefit we find is providing extra information about our new accessions with the LT data and also being able to offer our new accessions as an RSS feed from here, which we can't do from our own system.

At the Social Sciences Library at Penn State University we manually load our new books, and then the call number and a link back to the book in our catalog. Patrons can then request the book.
