Creating a community of librarians – Thing 2

So I’m working on CPD23Things and this week…last week, we were to go around to various blogs and comment and read. This was a great oppurtunity to read the work of other librarians – I don’t usually read the personal blogs of other librarians, but I figure this would be a good time for me to find others who share my interests.

As it turns out, CPD23 categorized my blog as a School library blog (or at least, that’s what it looks like under the Delicious account). This is fine, since that is mainly what I do right now, but doesn’t accurately express my interests in librarianship. I should consider updating it, but we will see.

One thing that is definitely interesting is finding librarians who aren’t from the US. I’d love to read their interests and thoughts and hopefully form a community that spans different continents. I’d especially like to find librarians who are interested in technology, as I would love to find out how different countries are adapting to new communication mediums.

I’ve been awful, and haven’t really engaged too many people. Since I’ll have much more free time in the next few weeks, I’ll try to engage the community more. Other than those of you who have commented on my blog, I haven’t gone out to find others or engaged others in conversation. I really should, as this is partially the reason why I joined this 23Things! Time to get on that whole “networking” thing…
