There are so many blogs out there that it is bewildering and hard to imagine where to begin, especially given that I am and so many viewers here are not native to the social media world yet… especially in our professional capacity. Blogging has been around for several years, and I think it is safe to say that after a wild west period of venting, it is starting to get more sophisticated and specific within professions. As the bad economy has persisted from 2007 onwards, I think it safe to say that people have begun to mobilize and actively share professional survival strategies to help each other through the tough times. Library science is certainly no exception. So while I have a variety of blogs here, I tried mainly to collect ones that focus on imparting specialty skills within the social media sector of libraries, many of which are linked together through mutual interest and overlap of members.
