Collection Spotlight: Librarian.net

Librarian.netGet inside the mind of Jessamyn West, rural librarian consultant and Metafilter moderator who shares news and thoughts on the library world on her popular blog, Librarian.net.

“I love libraries because I believe they are a true manifestation of the public sphere in the U.S.,” says West on her blog, created in 1999. “They are a place where people can read what they want, be who they are, and inform themselves about what interests them.”

Read a few of her latest entries on amazing international libraries, on living at the library (through the Internet), and on putting together good presentations (tips by David Lee King).
