A couple of weeks ago I was teasing Brian because he had used the word "ubiquitous" in about three separate posts/projects, and I suggested he rebrand himself as The Ubiquitous Librarian. Imagine my surprise when I saw in my aggregator that he's abandoning AltRef to start up a new blog called.... The Ubiquitous Librarian! From Brian's introductory post:
This blog asks you to rethink the role and traditional values that librarians hold. This blog seeks to break the stereotype and explore the possibilities of a new identity. This blog asks you to step outside the library and become ubiquitous.Along the same lines, Pam Ryan, Assessment Librarian at the U of Alberta, is ditching her personal blog to expand to a community blogging project called libraryassessment.info: A blog for and by librarians interested in academic library service assessment, evaluation, and improvement. There are currently a dozen librarians on the list of contributors to this blog. No real postings yet, but stay tuned!
