Blogging from the Backroom 8 June 2007

Last friday I attended this event (which was run by the Cataloguing and Indexing Group). It was very interesting to see what others Libraries are doing with Blogs, RSS and Web 2.0 tools. Among the presenters were two Library Managers from the Home Office, their presentation was fascinating, especially the use of GMail to diseminate news.

I also had an interesting chats with Helen Nichol from the NHS Connecting for Health Team about how they were using blogs for collaboration and Caroline De BrĂșn from the National Knowledge Service on their use of RSS Feeds on the National Library of Health My Library site.
