As you build your skills with Neal-Schuman's Tech Set, Effective Blogging for Libraries is the go-to resource for any librarian in search of practical, easy-to-implement instruction for creating and managing a winning library blog.
This comprehensive guide spans all phases of the library blogging process. You'll learn how to properly plan for and implement your blog, crucial posting techniques, and strategies for dealing with comments and tagging. You'll save time with Crosby's advice for marketing your blog, tips for managing staff bloggers, usability guidelines, and a variety of assessment methods. And she gives you real-life examples from libraries with successful blogs to help demonstrate current best practices.
As with all the Tech Set guides, the discussion is accessible to novices who wants to learn the technology and how to implement it, as well as seasoned pros charged with translating "best practice" examples to the local setting and quantifying results.
