I can't seem to get to Ruth's library (I was just checking how diligent she's been). I realized the reason might be that her library is "private" vs public. Don't we have to be public to share our libraries, or is there a way we can circumvent this?

We need to track down more information on 'sharing' this isn't the only question to come up today. I'd guess that since Ruth is evaluating things, she might not have much to share or the like.

Nothing like reading messages 8 months after they've been posted. Hugh is right. The "library" I first put on LT was really just a test of the system so I could report back to the CW board. That library is in my name, but has a dozen or so CW books listed, just to try things out.

The new library is in CW's name, is public, and now has over 700 books and periodicals entered. I'm guessing we'll end up somewhere between 1500 and 2000. It would be much more if I entered each study group notebook individually, but for now, I'm listing them by study group. After I get everything entered into LT, I can go back & enter notebooks individually, either by the year (e.g., Crackle SG, 2001-2003) or by the topic (e.g., Sixteens, Pique year).
