Libraries and Blogging

There’s a bunch of new insights into librarians and libraries in the blogosphere.
Check out Meredith Farkas’ 2007update of her survey of the Biblioblogsphere.
It’s here. She got over 839 responses this year compared to 165 in 2005. Very interesting – especially around gender differences, anonymity, diversity and job satisfaction.
Also, Walt Crawford has published his recent reviews of 252 library blogs. It’s value priced through at only $29.50 US. I’ll bet given his reputation for quality, insight and detail, that current library bloggers and those considering starting blog(s) can find a ton if ideas to improve or get a leg up here.

    And good luck with the nonstop travel…I am constantly amazed at your ability to do that much speaking and traveling.
