This feels a little like a birth announcement: The Library of Congress has launched its second official blog since the one you’re now reading took the blogosphere by storm in April 2007. (Hyperbole much?)
The Library’s Science, Technology and Business Division is an excellent addition to our growing social-media family. The very name of the division should tell you that it is chock full of wonderful stories and discoveries. (Not incidentally, they also have some of the most amazing curators and reference specialists around.) I myself have cribbed from their Everyday Mysteries website for blog fodder.
Jennifer Harbster and Donna Scanlon will be guiding you through the wonders of their corner of the Library. Both of them have already been contributing guest posts to this blog. They’re calling the new blog “Inside Adams.” I’ll let them explain their moniker.
“Inside Adams” represents another step forward in bringing our stories and collections to you in new ways, but it also comes along with some work behind the scenes that can now usher in additional blogs. We now have an aggregation page that features our blogs in a single place, along with recent posts, most-commented posts, and a handy list of our social media sites.
Check it out and let us know what you think.
And congratulations to Jennifer, Donna, and everyone else at ST&B. “It’s a blog!”
