Weblogs: Their Use and Application In Science and Technology Libraries

"Weblogs: Their Use and Application In Science and Technology Libraries" is the latest by Randy Reichardt and Geoff Harder of STLQ fame. It's in the most recent Science and Technology Libraries. The self-archived eprint is here. The article provides a solid historical introduction to what blogs and what they are used for in the library context, particular as reference desk communication aids and tools for keeping up with professional developments. For those of use who have passed beyond the beginner stage, Randy and Geoff talk about their experiences using blogs as a tool to engage mechanical engineering design students. Bravo!
