The Personal Library Guide

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.

This group supports discussion about The Personal Library Guide, a member-created wiki book in LibraryThing.

There are 58 (or so) distinct Sections in the Guide, covering all aspects of creating, managing, enjoying and ultimately downsizing and bequeathing your personal library. For 24 of those Sections you will eventually find a Topic here. The suggested format when creating Topics is


Postings might relate to:

Questions and answers about issues related to each Section. For every question there is an answer somewhere out there among the LibraryThing membership. Or several answers...

Stories of people's real experiences about each of the issues covered in the Guide can make the Guide come alive. It is the difference between reading about something, and hearing someone's voice telling you about it. Stories might confirm what is in the Guide, or contradict it, and both are equally valuable contributions. Ultimately we'd like to incorporate some of these stories within the Wiki Guide, but for the moment we can link from there to these postings, with the permission of each contributor.

An area for discussion about edits, corrections and creative disagreement in relation to each Section.

Each Section in the Guide will eventually have a link, direct to these Topics. Additionally there is a overall Topic related to the Guide itself, covering such issues as copyright, distribution and overall format. And of course members can create Topics on any other issues at any time.
