How and Why to Try a Blog for Staff Communication

Tech Tips

This month I write about using Weblogs for internal communication. At the SisrsiDynix Weblog presentation laste week, this was actually a question from the audience we didn't get to.

How and Why to Try a Blog for Staff Communication. Rachel Singer Gordon & Michael Stephens. Computers in Libraries, 10417915, Feb2006, Vol. 26, Issue 2

Librarians report that there are benefits to using internal Weblogs. An important one is experience. Steve Backs, an adult services department manager at the Monroe County Public Library in Bloomington, Ind., began internal blogging within the last year "as part of our efforts to create reasons for staff to work with up-to-date technologies." This may be the most important benefit of internal experimentation and use of new tools.
