Flash-Mob Cataloging Party: Rhode Island Audubon Society

It's time for another cataloging flash-mob*! This time we're heading to the Audubon Society of Rhode Island to add their small lending collection to LibraryThing.

LibraryThing members can help catalog around 2,000 items at the beautiful Powder Mill Ledges Wildlife Refuge, where I'm told we can take a nice walk for a break if the weather cooperates.

Need a little motivation? Read about our previous flash mob cataloging party in November here.
* The LibraryThing wiki page for the event.
* The day: Saturday, February 21st.
* The time: TBD, probably 10:00 a.m. till 4:00 p.m., but come whenever you're able.
* The place: Rhode Island Audubon Society Powder Mill Ledges Wildlife Refuge, 12 Sanderson Road, Smithfield, RI (Google map)
* Lunch will be provided by the Audubon Society

RSVP to sonya (at) librarything.com.

*What's a flash mob?

I worked in that library as a student volunteer 30 years ago when it was in Providence. I'm out of range now, but I'm sure the cataloging party will be fun.

We are so excited at Audubon about getting our library cataloged in LibraryThing! So far the weather forecast is for sun, so prospects for a walk look good.

Can't wait!!!

Now you head to the Chicago area and I'll be there. Know a bunch of other librarians to rope in also. Think about it. Isn't ALA's conference in Chicago this summer? Surely there is a deserving library and it would make a great event.
