Weblogs are a relatively recent Internet phenomenon, dating from the late 1990s. However, while Weblogs may be a natural for librarians (or for some librarians, at least), they are not yet a natural for libraries. This paper examines Weblog history and usage, particularly where libraries and librarians are concerned, and highlights some areas where Weblogs may be put to better use.
