LISWire - The Librarian's News Wire

Robin K. Blum (aka Birdie) and I started a new site a few week ago, LISWire - The Librarian's News Wire (, and I'm doing my best to spread the word (again, you may have already seen this). I'll keep this as short as possible, since you can probably guess what the site is all about from the name.

We also have 2 mailing lists, and a bunch of RSS feeds.

We are looking for press releases and other news items of interest to librarians to get things going. You can sign up for an account and submit things you'd like to announce to the library world.

It's just out of beta, so there might still be some bugs floating around. Let me know if you spot something that needs fixing! I'd love any and all feedback you can provide.


after the recent article that the Craig's list guy makes so much $$$, how come you don't have a library list for crap and services? is there a need for libraries to trade/donate old furniture or books? or for librarians to sell crap to each other? or to hook up? "dig horn-rimmed glasses and index finger callouses from page-turning? then let's meet! I'm into vampire erotica, hacking the xbox and drupal mashups..."

(yes, I just described my ideal woman: call me!)

I'm already hitched. Maybe I can convince my parents to let my twin sister out of the basement so she can meet you?

who knows, a "crap and services" website might be in the works...

Pretty much summarizes what I do all day.

I think all are available via your Twitter userid LISNews ... though in abbreviated form (max 140 chars).
