Library Association Rant

Aug - 13 - 2008
Nicole C. Engard

Okay, so part of my job is to keep up with news from libraries and seek speaking engagements on open source. The best way for me to do this is to subscribe to not only the big association feeds and mailing lists, but the state level associations. Which leads me to my rant!

Why is it that so many library sites still don’t offer RSS updates?? And if you don’t offer RSS updates why the heck can’t I subscribe to your mailing list? I’m curious what’s going on in other states – I want to learn and keep up with library news – and all you’re doing is keeping your info in a silo!

Libraries are about sharing information and these locked down association news sources bug me!! Come on people – we’re librarians – open the silos up and start sharing and using your colleagues to get information from.
