Thinking of Deleting this Blog.....

I haven't been adding to this blog for quite some time.

The interests of my retirement years have taken precedence to reminiscing about my library years or advocating new practices and procedures for the future of libraries.

The truth be known - most libraries I have been in recently just don't have a whole lot going for them.  They have cut back on staff and collections and just don't seem to offer much in the way of book collections.

The public computers are often down and available online resources are limited.

And trying to get a disinterested library clerk, or an overworked librarian to engage you in a conversation and show even a little interest in you or the fact that you have come in to use the services is really hard to do.

Get in - get out - and leave me alone is the staff attitudes I have experienced.

So - what say ye all?
Is anyone reading this blog?
Have you enjoyed reading it in the past?
Do you want me to start up again and offer my insights into the library world of today?

Let me know - because soon this blog may be a thing of the past!


  1. I've read it, because when you first announced it, I added it to my RSS feeds. There hasn't been much content, as you're the first to point out, but what there's been has been fine. If it would feel like an obligation, and not what you retired to do, though, it's not worth your pushing yourself. Bottom line - if you want to write it, I'll read it, but if you don't, I won't miss it much because there hasn't been much to miss.

  2. Nice posting "outdoor products " .. This is the first time I have come across your-site. Post info, I’ll be back soon. Thanks!


My Journey from Libary 1.0 thinking to Library 2.0 action!

This will be a new beginning as I explore with you the concepts of Library 2.0 and how it can and should impact the way resources are cataloged!

Cataloging is...
Access to information
The structure that makes things findable
The keyring that holds all the keys together
The right tool for finding information
