[18 August 2006: This post has been updated here]
Thank you for everyone who has let me know about Australian library worker and library blogs. Please excuse me for taking so long to update the list. I suspect that this is the last time that I shall be publishing this list of Australian library-type blogs. The numbers are increasing and the list is getting more cumbersome to maintain, and thanks to things like the ever-helpful LibDex and Frappr (although the way Frappr works for Australian bloggers leaves a lot to be desired) it's a bit redundant. Next time I'll probably just have a list of my favourite Aussie LIS blogs and new discoveries.
Anyway, here are the new inclusions:
- Bronwyn's Library Blog
- Dive into Information
- Dunn & Wilson Scholarship 2005
- Issues and Challenges of a Small School Library
- the lateral literal librarian
- Library clips
I also want to draw attention to the institutional blog which I'm adding here - (Melbourne) Eastern Regional Libraries.
The problem, as far as I see it, is that for Australian bloggers, Frappr only allows you to zoom to a city level. When there are 4 bloggers in a city like Melbourne, they are all clumped together and it is impossible to zoom further, it can be very difficult to view each of the four. Is there something very basic about Frappr that I'm missing here? Has anybody else noticed this?
