What this blog is about

So many people have mentioned the need for regular news online, that is additional to main workplace sources of information.

In thinking about the amazing changes that we are involved in with the digital world of our students it seemed just the thing to go really digital with a kind of online journal and update column combined!

I don't know if any of you read The Gutenberg Elegies by Sven Birkerts a few years ago, or indeed other books that have predicted the demise of print and books. While I don't think books are about to disappear just yet, I do think that we have to be sure that we understand the very different world that our students (or digital natives as they are sometimes referred to) are operating in.

This blog has been set up to provide an easy online way of distributing and discussing important bits of information related to working as information professionals in school libraries. BibBlog is an online record of ideas and happenings - perhaps a bibliographic record of changes? I hope BibBlog works for you as easily as it can work for me!

What about a link to ASLA (NSW)?
Some excellent stuff in there.
Btw it is great to see I can post without joining or anything! So simple!

I do like this format for communication as Jan said it is easy to use. I have been using LiveJournal with my English staff but it is not user friendly. Any one using blogs with their classes I would love to hear from you.
