Cruisin' the Library Blogs

Redwood City Public Library (CA) always has interesting links on their blog, Liblog; recently they pointed to a fascinating piece by usability guru Jakob Nielsen on what Life-Long Computer Skills schools should be teaching. Topeka and Shawnee County Public Library (KS)'s Papercuts is featuring posts about National Poetry Month right now. Last week, the La Grange Park Public Library (IL)'s Off the Shelves found a terrific resource, the New York Times' Newsroom Navigator.

More? Waterboro Public Library's (ME) H2Oboro Lib Blog, always a reliable source of literary news and book talk generally, lets us know that British author Michael Dibdin has died, and points to a full obitiuary in the Telegraph. A bit further back in time they had links to a couple of terrific articles about identity theft (1)(2). Buena Park Public Library District (CA) doesn't post as often as some library blogs do, but what's on top at the moment is a link to a great find, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's Definitive 200 top albums. It's a very nice-looking blog, too. The Southlake Public Library (TX) does author birthdays fairly often. Framingham Public Library (MA) has a Young Adult blog.

We could go on almost indefinitely, but will end with not a library blog but a librarian blog with a great title, Disruptive Library Techology Jester, who gave us a link to an audio file on a delightfully blue-sky topic, the Economics and Feasibility of Mass Book Digitization.
