Today’s question: Cataloging sources. What cataloging sources do you use most? Any particular reason? Any idiosyncratic choices, or foreign sources, or sources you like better than others? Are you able to find most things through LT’s almost 700 sources?
This is a fairly easy question, as we are only really given three options: Amazon, Library of Congress and that German thing. Amazon is the only one I use except for the rare occasions that my book is so old Amazon doesn’t have a clue or the ARCs that I might have to hand enter. I never knew there were more than those three, let alone nearly 700.
I use Amazon because I’m lazy. It’s the first choice, the default choice really, and why would I click on the LoC if Amazon can get me what I want?
