Several quaker libraries in Australia use LibraryThing, an easy online tool for creating, maintaining and sharing library catalogs. LibraryThing is also a social space: you can explore libraries in Australia (or around the world!), read reviews, join book discussions, swap reading suggestions - and so on. LibraryThing also makes book recommendations based on the collective intelligence of thousands of libraries. But LibraryThing's primary utility lies in its simple book search function.

Click here to search all the participating Australian quaker libraries via a single search.
(The search tool will open in a new window.)

Members of the Quakers DownUnder LibraryThing group: The search tool (above) allows you to see a list of LibraryThing members that own a given title; use the chart below to identify them by Meeting and by Contact.
