Via OPL Plus: http://yalibrarian.com/ About This Blog: This Blog is updated by two librarians who work with teens. It includes viewpoints about serving teens, as well as day-to-day commentary on what the librarians are learning and experiencing. Good stuff!

I like the idea especially if aggregated into a central page. It would certainly be something to explore. Please comment, e-mail me at mstephens7 (at) mac.com or IM me at mstephens7mac.
