I have 2 sidebars items which contain links to some products of the Australian library blogosphere. The first item is my list of blogs by Australian library-type people (and no, I'm not going to be more specific about what this means, but I'll err on the side of being inclusive). Note that the emphasis is on librarians as people, not libraries. This means that if I discover that you're a librarian and keep a blog about something completely unrelated to your work, the link to your blog will end up here. Right now this list aims at being a comprehensive list, in that I'll add any and every blog. If the list ends up becoming too big and unmanageable, that may change
From time to time, I'll highlight a blog which might otherwise be buried in this list, as such C.W.'s Ruminations - which I've been really enjoying lately ~ C.W. is the only Western Australian blogger which I've discovered so far, but I hope that there are more out there. Doubtless if I set my mind to it, I could discover a few more blogs right now, but I'd rather rely on serendipity and let them trickle in.
I've just started another list of Australian library blogs, these are the blogs by and for actual libraries and related organizations. I've only just started looking into this area. I plan to actively find more of these, but until that happens (or somebody passes on a few links to me) RMIT's need2know is there on its own.
Next morning edits: Thanks to my first commentor, I've already added three more blogs to the lists, all from WA. Also, although technically a librarian's LiveJournal would meet my definition of a librarian blog, I'm not adding LJs to this list. Most of them, including my own, were created with the understanding that they'd never end up on a list such as this. Call me biased or inconsistent, but what happens in LJ-land stays in LJ-land. One other thing, this is only going to be a temporary project. I'll do this for as long as it seems helpful, but there will be a time when it will get too big and probably won't be needed anyway. Finally, why do I flout the rules of grammar by listing the names of these blogs entirely in lower case? It's very important that the list be an alphabetical list, and I've learned that in TypePad, the presence of upper case can complicate these alphabetical lists, especially when there is non-standard usage of upper & lower case in the blog titles.
