Swap Sites

LibraryThing integrates with over a dozen "swap sites," websites that facilitate swapping books by mail. Integration largely means pulling availability information from the sites, and providing easy links. By default, LibraryThing show information from all sites. Most swapping members will want to customize this to the sites they actually use.
