Blog Ethics!

Karen posted this yesterday — probably about the same time I was looking at it and pondering a blog post! Well done Karen! Follow the links in her post to the other links. I’m tickled to see a PhD candidate looking at Blog ethics. I am just forming my thoughts about LIS Weblogs, librarians and information for research and possibly my dissertation at UNT.

* Blogging humanizes a Web site, that’s missing in a lot of library blogs * Link virtual reference services in your blogs (Does SJCPL do this?)

It’s an information channel.
