What is a library blog?
A blog is a website in the form of an online journal that presents information in reverse chronological order. You may be wondering what makes blogs an important information resource and tool for you and your library. Blogs are excellent means by which a library can fulfill its role as an information provider. For instance, calendars of events along with news and book reviews can be efficiently disseminated through a library blog (excerpted from Blogging and RSS: A Librarian's Guide by Michael P. Sauers).
How are blogs different from websites?
Readers of the Library’s blogs may comment with or without registering. When posting a comment, please remember to respect the opinions of all participants and to refrain from using profanity.
