Blogs you should read

On one library list, there is an ongoing discussion about library related or librarian blogs that librarians should be reading. I'm sure everyone has their favorites.  I read a lot of nonlibrary tech blogs that I find interesting and I participate in a couple of lists that do not have blogs. Anyhow here is my library related reading list:


I know -- cataloging is dead (ha! really!?), so what could anyone have to write about? How about LC decisions, nexgen catalogs, metadata, creative commons metadata and more. Cataloging dead, eh? I don't think so and reading this blog gives a good overview of all of the various pieces of it. ..and if you need even more cataloging news,

tech essence, which covers technologies in libraries.

ACRLBlog, covers issues in academic libraries from web2.0 to privacy and everything in between.

Designing Better Libraries, focused on design and user experience.

Stephen's Lighthouse, from Sirsi's Vice president of innovation.

Tame the web, 

..and to see the Top 25 librarian bloggers which includes such blogs as, the shifted librarian, librarian in black, etc.

Tech blogs: Lifehacks (gotta have them!) and techmeme. For all kinds of news, metafilter.
