Library Management: "Library Weblogs"

Gary pointed out that this journal is free to all this week. L.A. Clyde. "Library Weblogs." Library Management v25 n4(2004):183-9. DOI: 10.1108/01435120410533765
A few interesting observations:
  • only half of the blogs link back to the library home page?
  • only half of the blogs had a purpose statement?
  • the blogs aren't being updated regularly
  • libraries aren't marketing their weblogs through "claiming" at Technorati
  • institutional barriers to having library blogs?
I'm also interested in reading Harry Bruce, William Jones, and Susan Dumais. "Information behaviour that keeps found things found" Information Research v10 n1 (October 2004). It looks like it prints to about 27 pages, so I'm planning to read it online.


  • I've written about Keeping Found Things Found before and participated in at least one of their surveys. I think their work is quite interesting and very relevant to blogging.

    Both of these articles look like they're worth a read. I might end up citing one of them in a paper about weblogs among news librarians.
