Due to the abundance of blog sites, which run a gamut of topics, from personal diaries to hobbies to legal matters and so on, it is desirable to know their relevance to librarianship.
Surveys a number of library blogs and examines the content of each with the goal of determining their value and usefulness to librarianship.
Ranging from the light‐hearted to the more serious, library blogs permit a free exchange of ideas on both general and narrowly defined library topics. Posting on blogs fosters a timely exchange of information that traditional publications cannot offer.
Blogs redefine how information is shared, accessed, and published and adds a new dimension to how librarians seek and provide information to users.
