LibWorld: Library blogs worldwide

LibWorld is a recent publication that’s worth a look for anyone interested in library blogging worldwide. It’s a collection of 30 articles, originally posted on Infobib.de. Each article discusses the library and information blogosphere in a different country; from the large and well-established (USA) to the smaller and perhaps more obscure (Trinidad and Tobago, Malawi). Walt Crawford did the introduction. And I did the New Zealand chapter. I’m mentioning that several paragraphs into the post because I’m not 100% happy with what I wrote; it was a bit of a rush job and I didn’t revise it subsequently for the book (the idea for the book came about when I was offline for several months).

However, there it is, in print. Go take a look, I’m sure something in it will be of interest. You can purchase a copy from the link at the start of this post, or download it for free (PDF, 211 pages).  Kudos to Christian, Nadine and Sarah for making this happen, it must have taken a lot of effort to coordinate with all the authors.
