January Retrospective

Share this post:

So how did we do in January?  Not bad based on our stats.  Our blog was viewed more this month than any other since we started back in August.

There were several guest posts for In Custodia Legis this month, including two by Roberta Shaffer, the Law Librarian of Congress.  She first posted a holiday letter, Greetings from the Law Librarian of Congress, and followed that with the reflective piece Happy Old Year.  There were also a couple of posts related to the Congressional changeover:  Tip of the Congressional Iceberg detailed some of the questions the law librarians at the reference desk get at the start of a new Congress, and our rare copy of the constitution got its fifteen minutes of fame swearing in members of the House.

Our most viewed posts for January were:

1. Greetings from the Law Librarian of Congress

2. John Peter Zenger – Pic of the Week

3. THOMAS is Now on

4. Tribute to a K Class Act — Pic of the Week

5. Data Privacy Day 2011


7. Tip of the Congressional Iceberg

8. A Different View of the World – Pic of the Week

Our top commented on posts were:

1. An Interview with David Mao, Deputy Law Librarian of Congress

2. An Interview with Elizabeth L. Moore, Legal Collection Specialist

On our Facebook page, the most commented post was Data Privacy Day 2011, and the most liked was Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.  Based on TOPSY, it looks like our most tweeted about post was THOMAS off of THOMAS.  And thanks to those who have taken the time to blog about us as well!

Our interview series of Law Library of Congress staff has still been going strong.  There were four new interviews:  Henry Rossman, Elizabeth Moore, David Mao, and Don Simon.  I learned that one co-worker used to sky-dive, another routinely attends Mardi Gras, one plays the pipe organ, and one was in the Peace Corps.
