In checking out library blogs, I found a reference to the March 2007 issue of American Libraries, which has as its cover story “Mattering in the Blogosphere,” and came I across the term “biblioblogosphere.” (One article is an interview of ten prominent library bloggers. The first question posed was “What does it take for a blog to have an impact on the biblioblogosphere?”)
Which led me to wonder if there is a–what would we call it?–archivo-blogosphere? (Suggestions for a different term welcome.) I think not. Back in September 2005, Walt Crawford wrote an impressive post on Investigating the Biblioblogosphere. I’ll take his idea, but not his detailed methodology, and in my next post I’ll share my findings.
