Information Wants To Be Free

March 27, 2007 at 7:41 pm (Uncategorized)

Aside from being a great and inspiring phrase for librarians everywhere, Information Wants To Be Free is a popular and well-respected blog by Meredith Farkas, a librarian at Norwich University.  Here are some things I really like about the blog:  Visually, it’s very clean, in spite of the fact that there are a lot of different types of links in the sidebars.  The heading is nice with lovely photographs that change periodically – that’s something I’ll have to try and figure out.  The pages are all full of nice photographs and concise information written in a pleasant and conversational tone.

Good use of the sidebar, with a calendar showing speaking engagements (something i don’t need, because I have no speaking engagements…), links to buy her book, and buttons to connect readers with other services, like technorati, RSS, and google stuff.

Blog posts are sometimes quite lengthy, but are worth the read if you’re interested in Library 2.0 type programs and social networking in general.  Meredith doesn’t post every day, but that’s OK because the posts are so substantive.
