The results of the survey are in! It is nice to see the raw results, but I am wondering about how many specific groups of librarians read quite a few blogs as I do. So how many solo hospital librarians with many years of experience like me read a lot of blogs?
Yesterday, your intrepid chapter blog editor took the Survey of Health Sciences Librarian Blog Readers for Marcus Banks. Although I realize that I monitor and read quite a few librarian blogs, answering the survey questions was a revelation to me. I read A LOT of librarian blogs. There are over 50 blogs written by librarians or published by libraries in my Bloglines feeds. Why? How else could a solo hospital librarian keep up with our rapidly changing profession? I’m always looking for ways to improve services to my library clients. Aren’t you? I’m really interested in the results of the survey…perhaps I should go to Las Vegas for the meeting myself!
And here is where I confess that there are a number of blogs that I monitor just for fun. There’s Cute Overload, Neatorama, and ever useful, The Generator Blog.
