The UK Biblioblogosphere

The UK Biblioblogosphere is a blog by Keir Hopwood. From Keir’s announcement:

I wanted to announce my new blog, which details my MSc ILM research project on UK academic (i.e. university) library blogs:

http://ukbiblioblogosphere.blogspot.com/

On this blog I will

a) detail the progress and any interesting milestones in the research andwriting process itself

b) keep a list of relevant online resources, including openly available scholarly literature and related blogs

c) keep an updated “directory” of UK academic library blogs at http://del.icio.us/ukbiblioblogosphere

I warmly invite all readers of this list to follow my progress, leave comments and especially alert me to any new or closing blogs so that I can keep the list up to date.

I hope it contributes to research and practice in this field.

Keir, I expect to plunder your del.icio.us account for blogs not yet added to LibWorm– good luck with your project and thanks for making your collection available to others!

  1. Thanks for the blog shout there, Mr. Rothman.

    Are you aware of any more efficient ways to identify if university libraries have a blog, other than checking their website or emailing them?

    I looked on this LibWorm thing but I’m not sure how to narrow it down to UK universities, nor did I get much success with the major search engines (although slightly more!).

  2. Hi Keir-

    We’re hoping to add geographical information to each feed in LibWorm eventually- but it isn’t available at the moment.

    🙁
