Blogs take over the World! (3)

I have been looking at some other library and librarian blogs to try to see how they are emoting in this digital world, and have found quite an array of different blogs.

One of my favorites keeps me laughing and aware of proper librarian etiquette, check this blog out for some good laughs, Librarians Guide to Etiquette.

This fabulous blog What I Learned Today... covers everything we have been learning about in our class. Also, she links to an article about the Second Life library that we were discussing in class which also has a nice photo of the library.

Looking for blogs for libraries, or tips on how to use a blog in your library? This amazing website lists not only blogs from libraries and librarians around the world, but it also has a collection of articles providing ideas and advice on how to sucsessfully use blogs to promote your library.

There are so many librarian and library blogs out there, it started to get me wondering--- what about the archivists? Though my search is not done, I did find some very interesting blogs about digital history and archives.

This great blog, Endless Hybrids, Libraries and the Remix of Culture is worth checking out with many library related entries, and many other very interesting topics relating to the digital world.

Here is one excellent blog of note by a Canadian archivist, The Ten Thousand Year Blog, full of many amazing links relating to blogs, digital preservation, archives, information management, and more.

One more great blog,, Researching Access to Digital Archives explores the future of archiving, basically archives meeting the web 2.0.

Exploring all of these blogs is completely overwhelming.... One can get lost, spending hours and hours exploring this realm. It gets to a point where everything starts looking the same, I feel that the most sucessful blogs are those that capture the bloggers unique voice. The possibilities with blogging are endless!

Thank you for your kind words on my Ten Thousand Year Blog. Just for the record, I'm a Canadian archivist, sometimes librarian, and a photo historian.

Overwhelming, but enjoyable indeed- it's so nice to see so many different voices out there and to be able to connect with people who share similar interests, frustations and so many points of view about the profession. It's good to know we're not alone.
