So, now the UK library bloggers wiki exists…

…and I’m getting daily addition request emails (which is lovely!), I realise that there’s a flaw in the data I originally collected.

There’s no “visit date”, and for something as rapidly changing as blogs, that’s not good – things may change quickly, and without a visit date, it’ll be hard to know when things happened.

So….anybody want to volunteer to take a trip around the blogs, check what I’ve written about them for accuracy, and email me with the date of visit / revised synopsis?

No, thought not…guess what I’ll be doing this weekend?

Also, the line between “librarian” blogs, and “information professional” blogs is getting harder to draw. The list was set up to pull together all the UK library / librarian bloggers I could find. If people didn’t say in their “About” section that they were a librarian, or worked in a library, or the blog was run by a library, they were excluded. So yes, this has ruled out great people like Brian Kelly, and useful blogs on information literacy like Moira’s Info Lit Blog, but really, if the list is to stay accurate in only covering UK library bloggers, it’s got to be restricted to only those who define themselves as a librarian, or blogs for a library service…

  1. I’d be happy to visit some of the blogs on the list to make sure that your original synopsis reflects the content. Contact me at < HREF="http://www.libraryofdigress.wordpress.com" REL="nofollow">‘Library of Digress’<> to let me know which ones I should look at, so as to avoid duplication of effort! Christine

  2. I’ll echo Christine’s offer too, I don’t mind checking a section if it still needs doing. Send me an e-mail (joeyannelibraryanne@googlemail.com) if you want help and let me know which need looking at.

  3. Hi Jenny – Thanks for your kind comments about my UK Web Focus blog. I would agree with you that you should restrict the scope of your blog directory along the lines you’ve suggested. I’d still be interested, though, in making use of your directory to support UKOLN’s work in promoting best practices for the library community. Could you drop me an email at b.kelly AT ukoln.ac.ukThanks
