Organizations on LibraryThing

Organizations of every kind—from churches to law firms—use LibraryThing to create a online catalog of their books. It's an easy, cheap and fun solution to getting your books online.

Sign Up

To become an organizational member of LibraryThing, Create a new account and choose "organizational" during sign up. If you are already a LibraryThing member, go to Edit Profile and Settings and choose "organizational" from the drop-down menu.

Pricing

Organizational accounts cost the same as personal accounts—free to 200 books, $10 for a yearly membership, $25 for a lifetime membership.

Note: Prior to September, 2009, organizational accounts had different prices. They are now the same.

Limits

Organizational accounts are limited to a total of 5,000 books. They can grow to 10,000 books with permission.

Attention schools: because we have to comply with the COPPA law, our Terms of Service state that no one under the age of 13 may sign up for an account.

Special features

Choose a category (eg., business, museum, synagogue) and be connected to similar organizations. Organizational accounts get a special profile box and are listed together elsewhere on the site.

LibraryThing Local connects members to the real world of bookstores, libraries and book events. Add your bookstore or library as a venue or claim one that has already been entered. You can add a description, photos, hours or events.

Restrictions

Booksellers. Booksellers may list books, but not use LibraryThing to sell books. They are strictly forbidden from soliciting other LibraryThing members. Suggested uses include tracking staff picks, posting events and socializing with neighbors.

Pay-for-review sites. LibraryThing may not be used by or in conjunction with pay-for-review sites.

See the Terms of Service for other prohibited uses.
