One of the blogger I follow is Venn Librarian which is operated by Laura Pearle. Laura is the Director of Library Services at Miss Porter’s School in Connecticut. Her blogs seem to focus on school media. Here’s a word cloud what terms are most common on her blog.

Each of these blogs as super interesting. But it was a little difficult to find a common theme among them until I did the word cloud. Each of these blogs are unique and focus on different topics, but one things they did have in common is the emphasis on service and catering to there users. Whether its public, academic or a special collection, each of these libraries a dedicated to providing a quality service to its users. Regardless of the topic of the blog, what the content, service or product will mean to the users and the community appears in each blog. I think that’s really interesting and great to see. I think libraries should always keep there users in mind and always strive to provide the best service possible.
Til next time…shhh
