I am LOVING this:
We are six librarians working in academic, public, and school libraries across the United States. In addition to essays by its founders, In the Library with the Lead Pipe will feature articles by guests representing special libraries and archives, as well as educators, administrators, library support staff, and community members.
In the Library with the Lead Pipe is intended to help improve our communities, our libraries, and our professional organizations. Our goal is to explore new ideas and start conversations; to document our concerns and argue for solutions. Each article is peer-reviewed by at least one external and one internal reviewer.
I once said to a valued colleague: “The future of librarian blogging will be the group blog.” This is proof to me that we are heading that way. Not only do these folks have some spiffy graphics and artwork by one of the authors, Derik Badman, they will have their posts peer-reviewed internally and externally. This lends much to the concept of professional blogging. Pragmatic, if you will.
Please take a look at this one. I’m adding this blog to my newly weeded list of feeds. Looking forward to what comes next.
OH! And the tagline is perfection:
The murder victim? Your library assumptions. Suspects? It could have been any of us.
Update: I trust Peter Bromberg’s judgement in all matters related to library blogging. Don’t miss his opinions as well. This one may well be a keeper.
