Reading blogs

Lorcan 1 min read

I tend to have several blog entries lying around the place: often they just fall off the edge when my interests move on. Here is some text from one which I left there just that bit too long:

Library blogs are a mixed lot. I am always on the look-out for interesting combinations of reflection and experience. Bob Molyneux has been an intriguing contributor since he began working with Equinox, appearing in two blogs, open-ils and the Equinox blog. John Wilkin and Alma Swan are always suggestive, but seem to have faltered.

Well, John has gone and done an entry – which blows this one up 😉 He talks about the discrimination of opennesses (‘open’ is a word which is meaningless imho without qualification) and it has sparked some interesting interaction.
Alma has not done a blog entry. She has however produced yet another report: Key concerns within the scholarly communication process: report to the JISC Scholarly Communication Group, March 2008 [Word document]. I will return to this report, in particular to the section on accessibility (in the sense of being able to find, get, use and share stuff). Reading through the recommendations, I notice a profusion of suggestions for further studies: there are not enough good consultants in the UK to do this much work 😉
