Library blogging.


Library blogging.

Coombs, Karen A. and Jason Griffey.

Linworth Publishing, Inc.


151 pages




Recently librarians have been debating whether they need to add another aspect of life on the Internet to their repertoire, the blog. Coombs (web services, University of Houston Libraries) and Griffey (library information ethnology, University of Tennessee at Chattanooga) believe they do. However, they feel that those setting up blogs should understand how they might best be used. This book is an instruction manual. It starts with a basic explanation of what a blog is and what it is useful for. It continues with technical explanations of how to set up and maintain a blog. Many illustrations guide the novice through the process. The authors end by explaining blog culture, the proper behavior and idiosyncratic nature of this new form of community.
