Blogs In Libraries Blogs In Libraries Presentation Transcript

  • Blogs in Libraries Web 2.0 Technologies and the Library Industry
  • What is a Blog?
    • A blog is a public access diary published online. It can be updated anytime from anywhere and may contain all kinds of media including embedded video and graphics as well as HTML links. Other people may comment on these diary entries and share their own opinions for the benefit of anyone who accesses the blog.
  • Why do Libraries Use Them?
    • Blogs are a great way of disseminating current information to a large number of people. This makes them ideal for communicating with clients.
    • They are also an efficient method of distributing information and allowing groups of people to trade opinions. This is useful for library staff who wish to communicate with their peers in the industry.
  • Examples
