#8 Locate a few useful library related blogs and/or news feeds.

There are many search tools that can help you find feeds. Among them are:

  • Library Weblogs is a listing of Library Blogs worldwide.
  • Library and Information Science Blogs is a listing of Library Blogs from the Open Directory Project.
  • Topix.net – This search tool allows you to locate recent newsfeed items based upon keyword or phrase searching. The tool focuses specifically on news and media outlet RSS feeds for information, not weblogs.
  • Syndic8.com – Syndic8 is an open directory of RSS feeds that contains thousands of RSS feeds that users have submitted.
  • Technorati – Technorati is a popular blog finding tool that lets you search for blogs. Since RSS feeds are inherent to all blogging tools, Technorati Blog Search can help you find RSS feeds for topic specific blogs you may be interested in.

  1. Greetings. I have Firefox as my web browser and it is SO easy setting up RSS feeds through Firefox and their Sage Reader. I have signed up for the following feeds: Reading Rants (a teen book site), Read Roger (the editor of Horn Book), Salon.com (for news), Technorati (why not), Book Lust (Nancy Pearl’s site), and …drum roll…The Boston Red Sox for news and updates. I will now be spending each and every day reading my feeds!!

  2. Feedster is not working.

  7. I found http://www.planetesme.com by the wonderful Esme Codell. Really good , in-depth reviews along with a color picture of the cover.

  8. I signed up through Bloglines and found some really interesting library information and ideas through a blog I signed up for as an RSS. I shared some of the fun ideas with other librarians here. I hope to get a lot out of these new blogs, since I’ll be sure to check them now that I will be notified of new postings!
