New Blogs

A couple of interesting new blogs have popped up recently that I think are of interest to Tech Talk!

In the Library With the Lead Pipe is a group blog that publishes an article every week which has been peer-reviewed by at least 2 other librarians. By posting just once per week, they delve a little deeper than most authors, and present thoughtful, well-written articles.

HotStuff 2.0 is an automatically generated blog : “RSS feeds from over 800 library related blogs are collated on a daily basis and analysed in an attempt to discover new and/or interesting topics. Not all of the blogs have posted something new since HotStuff was launched, so the number of active blogs is lower.
A daily blog post is generated using a single word that has seen a marked increase in usage over the last few days. A “Word Wheel” image shows the strength of the links between that word and other words that have also recently seen an increase in usage. This can sometimes help to put to the words into context, but mostly it’s just an excuse for some eye candy!”

Check them out!

  1. The new blog you mention, In the Library with the Leadpipe, has a thoughtful analysis of the impact of the economy on libraries. Looks grim but the author winds up with a hopeful outlook on the future of libraries. Thanks for pointing this out.
