LibWorm

Here’s another customized search engine for library folk. It’s called LibWorm.
You can read about the launch by its creator, David Rothman and Frankie Dolan here. To quote:
“With LibWorm, you can search over 1100 feeds, including more than 800 biblioblogs, many LIS journal TOCs, and many other information sources of interest to libraryfolk.
Any search in LibWorm can be outputted as an RSS feed, so LibWorm should be a very useful way to track mentions of your favorite subjects in the biblioblogosphere and beyond.
You can choose to use LibWorm’s built-in aggregator by registering for an account, and this will also facilitate the social aspects of the site that will be implemented in the future.”
It is getting some nice initial buzz at Tame The Web, Phil Bradley’s Weblog, and Information Wants to be Free.

  1. Hi Stephen-
    Forgive me if this is a nit-pick, but to say that LibWorm is “another customized search engine for library folk” seems to imply that LibWorm, like the wonderful LISZEN, makes use of the Google Co-op Customized Search Engine tools. LibWorm is not a Google CSE, and does not use Google’s CSE tools.
    Thanks for allowing me to clarify!
    Best,
