Blog.com’s Top 10 Library Blog list

September 29, 2009

I recently read blog.com’s top 10 library blog list. There are two blogs I have been reading on a regular basis in there, but many that I had not been introduced to.

I’ve been reading Librarian in Black and The Shifted Librarian. I think it’s important to read other blogs on my favorite topics because it adds insight. There is always something new to learn. These two blogs do not disappoint!

I am amazed at how quickly Librarian in Black picks up the new news from the industry. She has kept me updated on the Google Books debacle and introduced me to the private school library that is removing all print books from their shelves. Her posts are short and to the point. Not bogged down with unnecessary words.

The Shifted Librarian tends toward longer posts, but they are still good! She has a good post on Libraries and Innovation Specialists and how each can help the other.

The other blogs on the list are (in order):

CILIP Information and Advice weblog
HeyJude
Judge a Book by its Cover
Laika’s MedLibLog
Rambling Librarian
Spineless?
Tales of One City
Tame the Web

Several of these blogs are specialized beyond librarianship. I doubt I will be interested in the MedLibLog because I am not interested in medical librarianship. Another blog, CILIP, is for librarians in the UK. Still, this list is a great resource to consider when reading blogs about libraries.

I plan to subscribe to several of these blogs on my reader. What about you?

A side note. Many of these blogs are hosted by WordPress. I feel pretty good about my platform choice now!
