libSite launches

The number of library and library-related websites available to peruse, surf or get lost in is so numerous, I get a headache just contemplating the thought. So….what a great idea the just launched libSite is – a recommendation service for library-related websites.

Seems the fab idea for this site comes from Leo Klein, based in Chicago US. I’ve just started exploring libSite, but I gather it allows you to recommend, rate and save sites to a favourites list. libSite also features a a blog, a wiki, RSS feeds and email alerts. And a LibSite Widget is available for people to place on their own sites. You can check out all the features here.

With users adding their own tags, libSite is yet another exciting example of Library 2.0 creating participatory networks. Great stuff!
