LibWorld – library blogs worldwide

Did you know about the LibWorld series on

Libloggers from around the world wrote essays about the state of library-related blogs in their nations.It’s been a fascinating series. (I think it’s still ongoing–for one thing, despite the “.de” in the domain name, Germany isn’t yet represented.)

Thirty of those essays have been revised and combined into a book, LibWorld – library blogs worldwide. It’s a 211-page trade paperback. The Infobib people have priced it very reasonably–$16.96 (plus shipping) for the paperback, and you can download the PDF for free.

I’ve read most of the essays as they came out. (They’re all in English.) The editors asked me to write a Foreword for the book; I was pleased to do so. I think quite a few of you will find it (the book–and maybe the foreword) worthwhile.
