So far, I’ve tried finding library blogs with Bloglines and Feedster, and they both stink. The key to finding a host of good blogs is not getting them from some silly blog search, but is finding one or two good blogs to begin with. (Maybe you have to use the blog search for that.) You don’t have to find them all, since any good blog will find information on — and thus link to — other blogs. Once you’ve found those couple of goodies, check out what they’re reading, and soon — SHAAZAM! — you’ve got a pretty wide variety of quality information.
I’m already subscribed to too many blogs to start with (some of which I’ll name below), so I’m applying a pretty high standard in subscribing to any more. Through the Bloglines blog search, I found the Library Juice blog. Library Juice is certainly not neutral; they have a progressive, community-minded, civil-libertarian slant to all they publish and aggregate.
Here are a few library blogs that I’ve found useful:
- Library Stuff
- Tame the Web
- The Shifted Librarian
- Resource Shelf
