I keep hearing that Library Blogs are a thing of the past, something I’ve been hearing since I started following Library Blogs about five years ago. Luckily, just like the frequently misreported death of libraries themselves there are many Library Blogs alive and well. I follow dozens of them in my Bloglines feeds. Coincidentally, today I found two of them reporting on bigger projects for people looking for Library Blogs:
- Swiss Army Librarian reports on a customized Google search engine that searches over 500 library blogs. You can check out LISZEN Search yourself as it should be a valuable resource.
- Walt at Random is working on a more ambitious project to create a directory of over 1000 library blogs and looking for submissions for more. He even graciously includes Panorama of the Mountains although my posts with library content are few and far between.
