I was excited to see that the Bloggers Roundtable I did with several other fabulous librarian bloggers finally made its way into Library Journal. It’s a great article, but part of me was disappointed that it didn’t capture the synergy that was going on in that room. It was a truly amazing, enlightening, and inspiring …

by Meredith Farkas on 9/12/2005 with 2 comments

Since there were 19 questions in the survey, one essay question, and many questions that allowed “write-in’s”, I figured I’d break the results up into a few blog posts. Here is the list of the other posts in the series: Survey of the Biblioblogosphere: Blog Demographics Survey of the Biblioblogosphere: Attitudes and Behaviors Survey of …

Over the past month, I’ve worked with the folks at WebJunction to develop September’s Online Communities focus. I had the opportunity to work with some fantastic librarians/writers/bloggers and got to do some wiki evangelizing in my own two articles.

Everyone is all a-twitter about Walt Crawford’s investigation of the biblioblogosphere where he measured the “reach” of blogs and highlighted the top 50 librarian blogs.

I don’t know how much I’ll be able to post during the month of August. Between the move and the probability of Internet access issues, I can’t promise anything. I’m sure I’ll be able to write a bit about what’s going on with the move and the job, but the longer posts will probably have …
