Legacy Libraries

A group for those interested and involved in entering the personal libraries of famous readers into LibraryThing as Legacy Libraries. For discussions of the libraries of those still among the living, head on over to the "Other Peoples' Libraries" group.

Browse, search, and augment Legacy Library data via the Legacy Libraries page.

If you'd like to join a Legacy project already underway, please use the contact information listed on the Legacy profile, or contact jbd1.

If you'd like to start a new Legacy project, visit the Cataloging Guide and learn how to get started. Also see the Legacy Libraries page for more info. Please make sure someone hasn't already started a project for your subject before getting underway.

Questions? Comments? Additions? Contact jbd1.
