Week 2 Case Study Reflections
I’ve finally had a chance to surf around the 4 Library blog sites posted for consideration. I love the idea of library blogs and I certainly think they will continue to grow and become a very large part of the library and help libraries to further develop their virtual image and place. From a public library users perspective, I think this is a great way to stay involved in the community and community forums. Being so busy with school and work at the moment I don’t get to visit the library as often as I’d like, and while the library website is a great way to keep up with what’s happening, the blogs are a great extenstion to contribute and stay involved. I am a big fan of the readers advisory uses and the forums for book discussions. As for the academic library blog(Georgia State University) I really enjoyed the organization of subject specific blogs along with the information on new resources, services etc. Also, the Western Springs History blog was a great way for the library show case its involvement in the community and to provide a forum for the public to interact virtually with the both the hospital community and library community interested in the joint project.
