LTFL Reviews: you stand 300,000 deep

At the end of May, we reached 300,000 reviews vetted and available for LibraryThing for Libraries!

We'd previously been bragging about having 250,000 reviews, so here's my core sample: at the beginning of April, we had 24 reviews for The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao by Junot Diaz. Now, we have 74. Of course, popular books will get more reviews, but trust me – we also cover the long, long tail of library collections.


The LTFL Reviews Enhancement is currently available for Horizon, iBistro, Webvoyage, Voyager 7, Koha, WebPac and WebPac Pro. The LTFL Catalog Enhancements are available for practically every OPAC. Contact us for more info.

So how many distinct works does LTFL have reviews for?

The local library consortium went with ChiliFresh. I am not impressed.

Question: How do I know if one of my LT reviews was selected as a "vetted" review for LTFL? I know in my profile setting I give LT permission to use/share my reviews. Just curious as to whether one of mine "made the cut."

I found one of my reviews on the Montgomery County Community College (Maryland) library web site. I graduated from that school!! ...and three people there even found my review helpful. What fun!

Figuring out how many distinct works was going to take some doing - something about long computational time.

I CAN answer the other question better :)

The only way to really figure out if your review or reviews have made it into the vetted group is to go to a library with Reviews and search for a book you wrote a review for, then slog through all the reviews. Your LT username is associated with the review, so you can (ctl/cmd+f) it.
