Library Anywhere screencast / LTFL weekly webinars

I’ve just made a screencast of Library Anywhere, our mobile product for libraries. What it does, how it works, even a glimpse at the administrative backend! Click the image below to watch.

Webinars—LibraryThing for Libraries and Library Anywhere
We’ve also started doing weekly webinars to demo both Library Anywhere and all the LibraryThing for Libraries enhancements for your library catalog (tags, similar books, other editions, series, awards, shelf browse, reviews, and Lexile measures)!

They’re scheduled for every Tuesday afternoon at 2pm EST. Sign up for one today and I’ll tell you everything you ever wanted to know, and more, I promise.

Click here to register. On the WebEx registration page, under Attend a Meeting click “Browse Meetings” and then “Monthly” to register for scheduled webinars.

Early Reviewers: The Movie

The Early Reviewers movie!

Abby and I just got back from BookExpo America in Los Angeles. We spent our time visiting almost every publisher in the two halls, inviting them to join our LibraryThing Early Reviewers program (for publishers/for members).

It took three days, but we did it. Response wa positive. Many publishers already knew about LibraryThing, and “free” is a powerful word for cash-strapped publicists.

To explain Early Reviewers to publishers we’ve put together a short (2:20 second) video. It’s our first effort in this direction. In the weeks coming we hope to produce screencasts illustrating other LibraryThing projects, important features and some of the ideas behind the effort.

It’s very cut-down and simplfied, and its not as technically proficient as I would like, but I’d be interested to hear what people thing of it. Leave your comment here or on Talk.

I just posted it to YouTube too, so you can share it more easily.

PS: It wasn’t all work. We also managed to take some photos with the presidential candidates.
