As a Matter of Fact

Best of NPR National Public Radio, or NPR as its fans call it, tends to amass a legion of listeners wherever it goes. Its radio shows spin off into books, movies, and speaking tours. The NPR website has a wealth of useful information, as well as listening schedules, station finders, streaming radio, transcripts and podcasts.

The NPR librarians have also started their own blog, As a Matter of Fact. In its five months of existence, the blog has provided an interesting blend of current events, pop culture, LibraryLand, and historical archives. There are also neat insights into the types of research they do. Taxonomy not Taxidermy! is a gem, and you don't have to be in the biz to fully get the joke. There's also a neat slideshow of librarian fashion.

So if you're curious about some of the folks who bring you your news, As a Matter of Fact is a must-read.
