Article in Library Journal

There is an article in October's library journal titled: "Talkin Blogs: Library bloggers discuss the impact of their work." It highlights a round table discussion concerning the professional impact of blogs; the ethics of blogging; blogs and print journalism; and what makes a blog good. I find it interesting that much of the conversation touches on various aspects discussed by our panel at the ALAO conference.

Saw this in last week's (November 10, 2005)Library Journal Academic Newswire (TM). Hopefully the information we librarians exchange would rate higher in trustworthiness!!!

SURVEY SAYS ONLINE USERS LESS TRUSTFUL OF BLOGS
More than one-quarter of web users access blogs, but according to the
latest Consumer Reports WebWatch survey, conducted in May and June of
this year, only 12 percent of respondents thought information reported
on blogs was accurate most of the time. ... Trust emerged as a central
issue in the report, LEAP OF FAITH: USING THE INTERNET DESPITE THE
DANGERS. With 27 percent of Internet users reporting having visited a
blog in the past several months, 57 percent said they distrusted the
content.
