LibraryThing, il sito di folksonomy dedicato al social tagging dei libri, ha raggiunto l'importante cifra di 2.634.375 libri catalogati, in questo modo ponendosi 'virtualmente' per posseduto tra le prime 100 più grandi biblioteche statunitensi secondo la classifica dell'ALA.
Uno stralcio dal sito di LibraryThing:
"LibraryThing has reached its 2,634,375th book! While 2,634,375 doesn't look special, it is in fact one more than the American Library Associations's 100th largest library. In dethroning the Kent State system, LibraryThing steps into place as the new 100th largest library in the United States.
Okay, the ALA probably won't add us to their list. And, okay, LibraryThing isn't really a library in that sense. (It's more like the library consortium OCLC—if OCLC were in Lilliput.) But the milestone is pretty cool nevertheless. In nine months, LibraryThing has gone from zero to 2.6 million books. At this rate, we'll hit the top 30 by the end of the year, and there's no reason to believe LibraryThing won't top the Library of Congress' 29 million volumes some day."
