About meI'm Information and Learning Technology Manager at a college in Oxford.

About my libraryThere are some interesting comments in Anne Fadiman's books about strategies for organising your library on shelves, similar to Nick Hornby's ideas about music collections and Italo Calvino talking about how books should be set out in book shops.
I've started my Library Thing listings with some clusters of topics such as music, British history, ceramics and natural history.
I suppose the really clever feature of Library Thing is that you can re-organise the collection online at the click of a mouse instead of pulling everything all over the floor and starting again.
One interesting question I'm reflecting on is whether a book that you decide isn't worth listing is one that ought to be going to the second hand book store?
