Catalog This!

Embracing my inner geek again. A library school student of my aquaintance posted about LibraryThing on her blog. Neat little tool. You enter in the books you own and LibraryThing searches Amazon and libraries using the Z39.50 protocol. You can keep your book catalog private or you can allow others to see what you have. Very, very handy.

Of course, nothing beats the fact that I used EndNote to catalog my DVDs…

ConQuery

Well, this is a neat little tool! When you highlight a term and right click on it, instead of it just searching Google, now you can pick from any of the search plugins you have loaded. There are also specific conquery plugins you can install. I rather like the ISBN search myself.
