Using DOIs in Blogs

When I was at the Seminary we were looking for a persistent identifier for our digital collections. We ended up choosing to use DOIs. So, when I saw this press release I thought – cool – we made the right choice: CROSSREF LAUNCHES FREE CITATION LOOK-UP TOOL FOR BLOGGERS Lynnfield, MA. February 12, 2008. — CrossRef, the association behind the well-known publisher linking network, announced today that it had launched  [ Read More ]

Movable Type Follows Suit

When I give my blog presentations I always mention MovableType, but I also mention that it’s not open source like WordPress (which is my blog tool of choice). Now, MovableType has an open source free option for non-commercial use. As of today, and forever forward, Movable Type is open source. This means you can freely modify, redistribute, and use Movable Type for any purpose you choose…. MTOS has every feature  [ Read More ]

WordPress Help Sheet

The Advanced WordPress Help Sheet includes snippets from Styling Different Categories to Dynamic Page Titles. This is also only the first of a few I’ll be releasing. I plan on having at least three Advanced WordPress Help Sheets, totaling to around 9 or 10 pages of WordPress goodies. This sounds pretty handy. One day I’ll have time to actually focus on fixing this blog up the right way – for  [ Read More ]

Almost Chair of the SLA-IT Blogging Section

I mentioned a couple of weeks ago that I would soon be the chair of the SLA-IT Blogging section – well – it’s that time. I’ve posted my hello post and I’m ready to roll!! Technorati Tags: blogging, sla, special libraries association

My RSS Feed

After upgrading to the new release of WordPress I went from 2000 readers to 900 – that means that my plugin that counts those of you not using my FeedBurner feed doesn’t work with the new release (or over 1000 of you got annoyed at me for something I wrote ). So – if you’re reading this via RSS I’d love if you’d take a moment to change your feed  [ Read More ]

Chair of SLA-IT Blogging Section

This year I’m going to try something different – I’m going to try and juggle blogging in two places. This past year I have been blogging at the SLA-IT Blogging section blog every once in a while – but starting in 2008 I will be the Blogging Section chair and as such responsible for keeping the blog up and running! Jill has posted her farewell post – and I will  [ Read More ]

Columnists moving to Blogs?

I just read that Roy will no longer be writing his column for Library Journal – but will continue to blog – an option he didn’t have when he started out 10 years ago. Blogs didn’t exist then either. But since they do now it seems like a fairly good platform for continuing my coverage of all things digital that impact libraries. I can be as timely as I want,  [ Read More ]

Thank you library bloggers

I totally agree with Michelle and am so happy that she has put it into print – hopefully other librarians out there will learn from the biblioblogsphere – that’s why we’re here isn’t it? To share our knowledge with our colleagues: I have been thinking about the biblioblogosphere and all the library bloggers out there, sharing experiences, successes and failures, thoughts and processes and more. I started thinking about what  [ Read More ]

An article on Ars Technica, by Nate Anderson, points out a federal case where a judge has rules that bloggers have the same rights as journalists. This case was prompted by a blogger posting about his negative experiences with BidZirk using not the company logo, a picture of the company owner and his family and some not so friendly terms. The most important section of the ruling is the one  [ Read More ]

Communication 2.0 at EMA

I presented with Sarah Theimer from Syracuse this morning. Sarah talked about how they use MediaWiki for keeping track of procedures. She started by asking “Will a wiki work?” and her answer was “Sort of” – my answer is YES! It was fun to listen to Sarah because a lot of what she said was repetition of what I’ve heard from others. It’s nice to hear that you’re not alone.  [ Read More ]
