Library Weblogs

Weblogs are being used by public libraries more and more to share information with their users on new services and service changes. I think that this is an excellent way to promote a big event or simply inform users when the next book sale is.

Gateshead Libraries have a weblog as part of their excellent libraries website. It is called et cetera. As new web technologies are taught on library courses it is important that aspiring librarians keep up to date with these sorts of technologies, after all it is likely that you will have to apply it in job. You could be asked to set up and run a weblog for your library service or you may be asked to train the public or local community groups how to blog.
