The Congressman Frank J. Guarini Library located on the New Jersey City University campus has begun its first blog. They’ve already added a few posts and plan on using the blog to keep you updated on library events and resources and to share stories about libraries and librarians.
I’ve been to the blog and already like the frequent updates and the clean design of a layout which validates. It’s been added to my RSS reader and perhaps you’ll find it useful enough to add to yours as well.
Libraries sometimes get negatively associated with being outdated. “Who needs books when we have the Internet?” some may say. I disagree completely. Libraries are perfect examples of utilizing the best of yesterday’s, today’s, and tomorrow’s technologies. Do you like to carefully turn the old, worn but original pages of a great novel? Do you marvel at the speed of database catalog queries? Is there so much information that you simply need a human being to guide you in the right direction? Would you rather quickly access multitudes of REPUTABLE content libraries on your own? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you will find that the best place to find any of these things is at a library.
NJCU’s Guarini Library has entered the blogging world. Once again, a new vehicle of communication is being utilized and a wider audience can benefit. I welcome this library into the blogosphere.
