In private, I use it because I have books climbing up my baseboards at home and I need to know what I have and what I don't have. I have used LT to test my own understanding of cataloging practices as well as social networking sites. I chat in The Green Dragon because it is the friendliest group of people you could ever seek out.
I haven't used LT professionally (except using LT as an example of an extremely cool social website & catalog of materials when talking to coworkers), but some of my coworkers have:
I like to see what books are recommended. I've often read books only because they are on my recommendation list. I've made an excel spreadsheet with them every 6 months to see how they've changed (and they change dramatically). I add the newest suggestions to a page - and it's about 500
I like to see how people have rated the books that I've been interested in reading. A low librarything score guarantees that I won't read it.
Since so many people read fiction than non-fiction, I've separated my library into 2 accounts. Otherwise, I would have no non-fiction suggestions.
I also spend way too many hours looking through other people's libraries. I wish more people would rate their books, or categorize them.
I've stopped using the 'currently reading' flag. It's too much of a pain to keep up with.
