Interesting Collocation

Cutter's functions for the catalog are something we all learned in Cataloging 101. The FRBR functions seem pretty familiar. However, if you let others loose on bibliographic data they come up with some interesting ways to collocate works, say by a person's library. Over at LibraryThing the crowd is entering and tagging the personal collections of famous people. Want to see what Lawrence of Arabia had on his bookshelves? Or maybe Aaron Copland? Just more proof the everything is miscellaneous.

Library Thing is definitely a great site! There is always the interesting book cataloging/Tags that are there.
