Tim Spaulding of Library Thing



Tim Spaulding of Library Thing

Originally uploaded by NLLN.

Tim was the opening key note speaker at the 2008 MLA Conference. He was sponsored by the MN multitype library system directors and was a very popular speaker. As the creator of “Library Thing” (which was one of the 23 Things on a Stick), Tim was able to speak not only of the creation/growth of LibraryThing, but also about the tremendous impact social networking, especially in the area of tagging and content creation, can have on library catalogs.
