Library, Librarians, and Library Science Blogs on the Internet
Tháng Tám 3, 2007 Để lại bình luận
Blog đã trở thành một hiện tượng xã hội và người làm thư viện cũng chẳng đứng ngoài cuộc. Nhiều blog của cán bộ thư viện đó đây trên toàn cầu đem đến cho người đọc nhiều chia sẻ, suy tư, kiến thức, kỹ năng nghề nghiệp mà có thể quý vị sẽ không tìm được trên giảng đường hoặc ngay trong kho kiến thức khổng lồ của thư viện quý vị. Bài viết giới thiệu một số blog như vậy.
- LiS Interactive Webcasting
Not blogs per se but podcasts (audio files you can listen to). From the
site: “Welcome to LISRadio. This is a new and exciting series of
interactive webcasts brought to you by the School of Information
Science and Learning Technologies at the University of
Missouri-Columbia. Our aim with these webcasts is to help in ’…creating
and exploring the intersection of information and learning.’ We hope to
present interesting and stimulating conversations with movers, shakers,
and the odd gadfly or two in libraryland.”
- Filipino Librarian
Description: “For those interested in knowing more about the Philippines, Filipiniana, Philippine libraries and Filipino librarians.”
It would be wrong of library students to drop out of their programs and
simply read Vermonter Jessamyn West’s blog about creatively integrating
techonology and a human-centered approach into library services. But it
would be understandable. A great blog.
- Library Technician
An anonymous blogger talks about his experiences being a library
technician, with his viewpoints about the profession, about libraries,
about the job market for library techs, and about the relation of
libraries to technology and service in general.
- The Information Literacy Land of Confusion
Librarian Michael Lorenzen from Mt. Pleasant, MI discusses information
literacy, search engines, librarianship, library instruction, and user
education. Rambling only to keep us awake, Lorenzen often posts very
useful tools for librarians, e.g. the IllumiRate Directory.
- oss4lib — Open Source Systems for Libraries
Lists open source or free software designed for libraries and provides
news about ongoing open source projects and related issues that could
benefit libraries. Maintained by Dan Chudnov, staff programmer at
Yale’s Center for Medical Informatics.
- Information Research Weblog
Description: The weblog for the e-journal Information Research
whose purpose is to allow the journals readers to share news of
publications, Web sites, or the like, related to information science,
records management, librarianship.
- -usr-lib-info || hacker-librarian haven
An attempt to turn hackers into librarians and vice-versa. This
collaborative blog encourages submissions that fit provided editorial
guidelines. The blog’s post’s are usually pretty technical.
- Beyond the Job
A blog maintained and mainly contributed to by two reference
librarians/professors in library and information science, Sarah Johnson
and Rachel Singer Gordon. The blog provides tips, news, and notices for
and regarding library jobs. These two bloggers also maintain other
sites that provide listings of library jobs.
- Information Literacy Weblog
A blog from two UK professors, Sheila Webber and Stuart Boon, and one
Scottish professor, Bill Johnston, its aim is to spread news and
information about information literacy worldwide, and the blog seems to
both spread the information worldwide and spread news from around the
world (or at least from Europe and not just the U.S.).
Mary Minow features fascinating library law news now and again so
surfers interested in library law can commisserate or opinionate —
maybe more. Alright, I’ll stop alliterating and being glib about a
really great blog covering legal library and library-related legal
news. (So I lied slightly; now I’ll stop.) Minow was a librarian before
she went to law school, and now she tries to share pertinent knowledge
she learned with librarians.
- The Shifted Librarian
You cannot judge a book by its cover or a blog by its lack of
attractive graphic design elements. Jenny Levine’s blog on blogging,
techonology, and libraries has so much Google juice that if you just
type “Jenny” in Google–well, guess what pops up? Possibly sick of this
fact by now, Levine was awestruck at the power of information
superhighway rather early on (1992 or so) and has now devoted at least
her blog to helping librarians become tech savvy.
- Peter Scott’s Library Blog
Another great, techie librarian sharing his knowledge of how librarians
can use the internet to help patrons, Scott compiled the first
hypertext index of the Internet resources, Hytlenet, first released in
1991, and he maintains the following sites: Libdex, the libary index;
Library Weblogs (by and for librarians); Publishers’ Catalogues;
Weblogs Compendium, a site for blogging resources; and
allrecordlabels.com, a list of record label companies.
