New Site for Library Press Releases and News

Blake announces:

I started a new site, LISWire – The Librarian’s News Wire (, and I’m doing my best to spread the word. You can probably guess what the site is all about from the name, but there’s also
2 mailing lists, and a bunch of RSS feeds. Robin Blum and I are running the show and are looking for press releases and other news items of interest to librarians to get things going. You can sign up for an account
and submit things you’d like to announce to the library world. I’ll be cross posting most announcements to LISNews for a little while until we see how much traffic we get at LISWire.

I love this idea of a central place I can get access to press releases. If I get an email press release it usually goes to spam or I delete pretty quickly if it has that PR “voice.” I’ll be subscribing to the feeds to see how this goes. Thanks Blake and Robin!
