371.33 School Librarians Who Blog: The Whys and Wherefores

A recent issue of American Libraries, the ALA magazine, included an article on librarians who blog. Problem was...they did not include school librarians. So Doug Johnson of Blue Skunk was among the school librarian bloggers who brought this to the magazine's immediate attention!
Results...there will be an article about school librarians who blog in the May issue.

Several of the bloggers who were interviewed for the article have been posting their answers to the questions. They want to be sure the "whole" sense of their answers are made public.

If you still are not sure about the value of blogging and how some bloggers use the technology to benefit their students, here is a partial list of the bloggers who have posted their answers to the American Libraries questions:
Doug Johnson at Blue Skunk
Christopher Harris at Infomacy
Joyce Valenza's NeverEndingSearch
California Dreamin' by Rob Darrow
Alice (Yucht) in Infoland (her page may load with lots of blank space?--scroll down)
From the Inside Out by Sara Johns Kelly (ALA president-elect!)
Gargoyles Loose in the Library
Carolyn Foote at Not So Distant Future
I will add any others who post their answers to the magazine questions if I come across them.
