Flash-Mob Cataloging

This group has become officially dormant. It happens. If you want to revive this group, or create a new group on the same topic see this page.

Flash-Mob Cataloging is when a horde of LibraryThing members descend on some small library, catalog their books in LibraryThing, eat some pizza, talk some talk and leave them with a gleaming new LibraryThing catalog.

Join us here to plan future flash-mob cataloging parties, discuss details, ask for advice on starting your own, and more.
