I think the Pageflakes grab-bag approach works better for some things than others. Anyway, here are three sites that have come over my horizon recently.

  1. My colleague Karen Smith-Yoshimura alerted us today to a page of library blogs assembled by British Library staff. I was interested to see the classification employed. There was I thinking that this blog had become much more general in recent times, and I see it classified under ‘web and library technology’. There are some interesting videos under the photos/videos tab.
  2. There is always something useful on the BBC Internet Blog page.
  3. I worked in Dublin City Public Libraries many years ago and so was pleased when Eddie Byrne got in touch a while ago. Here is the page he has put together showing library resources.
