On one library list, there is an ongoing discussion about library related or librarian blogs that librarians should be reading. I’m sure everyone has their favorites. I read a lot of nonlibrary tech blogs that I find interesting and I participate in a couple of lists that do not have blogs. Anyhow here is my library related reading list:
I know — cataloging is dead (ha! really!?), so what could anyone have to write about? How about LC decisions, nexgen catalogs, metadata, creative commons metadata and more. Cataloging dead, eh? I don’t think so and reading this blog gives a good overview of all of the various pieces of it. ..and if you need even more cataloging news, http://www.catalogingfutures.com/.
tech essence, http://techessence.info/ which covers technologies in libraries.
ACRLBlog, covers issues in academic libraries from web2.0 to privacy and everything in between.
Designing Better Libraries, http://dbl.lishost.org/blog/ focused on design and user experience.
