Blogs in the Library

Posted on September 14th, 2011 by Paul Stainthorp

There seems to have been a spate of my colleagues in the Library creating new, personal/individual blogs on my.blogs.lincoln:

  • Judith@theLibrary, Judith Elkin, Academic Subject Librarian, created 7 September, 2011
  • Sport Librarian, Oonagh Monaghan, Academic Subject Librarian, created 6 September, 2011
  • Meandering into the future, Chris Leach, Systems Librarian, created 6 September, 2011
  • Business Librarian, Daren Mansfield, Academic Subject Librarian, created 17 August, 2011
  • Faye@the Library, Faye Cleminson, Academic Subject Librarian, created 10 August, 2011
  • Thought Cloud, Elif Varol, Library (E-resources) Assistant, created 21 May, 2011
  • (er… Paul Stainthorp, Paul Stainthorp, Electronic Resources Librarian, created 22 July, 2010)

Which is nice. They’re all mostly empty at the moment. But I hope people will get into the habit of blogging regularly. Our initial experiments in library blogging were based around the idea of writing for shared, multi-author, institutional news-type blogs (Library news blog, The Winch!, L&LR staff blog). But I’m not convinced that way of working has stood the test of time. Blogging seems to make much more sense when it’s done by a named (or at least pseudonymed) individual, writing in their own voice and from their own perspective about their own work. Posts could then always then be aggregated/digested into a secondary library-wide blog for ease of following.

I’ve aggregated all the individual library staff blogs into this OPML file, in case you’re desperate enough to want to follow us all. You should be able to import it into a feed reader (e.g. Google Reader).

Because a couple of|the new blogs are using the standard photo of the GCW at night as their banner image in the CWD WordPress theme, I might pick out a different library-themed photo from my flickr photostream to use on paulstainthorp.com. Don’t be surprised if it changes soon.
