Blogs Explained for SJCPL Staff


For the SJCPL Intranet, I posted this to let the staff know what these blog things are:


You'll notice on the new site two content areas called blogs -- the Book Blog and the Sights and Sounds Blog. Webopedia defines a blog as "a Web page that serves as a publicly-accessible personal journal for an individual." Blogging has created quite a stir in the library tech community because of its ease of use and practicality -- beyond the idea of a "personal journal" a blog can serve as a "Current news" web site. Take a look at Escondido PL in California to see another Blog in action.

We have started with 2 blogs as a pilot program approved by the SJCPL Administration and Web Team. This may expand if the blogs prove popular!

Take a look at Joe Sipocz's Book Blog and Julie Hill's Sights and Sounds Blog off the new web Page!
