Open Position: LibraryThing Custodian

May 24, 2013

Do you like books? How about maintaining lists and databases? The In Other Words Lending Library needs you!

The lending library offers books, zines, journals, and media items to the general public, and needs a book-friendly, organizationally-inclined, dedicated person to maintain our LibraryThing database. We regularly receive donations, so we add new titles and weed old titles to make space.

LibraryThing is an online service to help people catalog their books easily. You can access your catalog from anywhere—even on your mobile phone. Because everyone catalogs together, LibraryThing also connects people with the same books, comes up with suggestions for what to read next, and so forth.

Time commitment:

  • 3 hrs/week

  • Able to understand and use web-based database software
