Extensible Librarian – finally a name change…


I thought it was time for a change, so here it goes.

The new name for my blog will be “Extensible Librarian.”

The content will remain the same, as I focus on issues involving libraries, technology, user services, Web 2.0, and our modern digital life.  I understand any confusion this may create, as I too hate when services start changing names after I have grown accustomed to them; but I think this title better suits the nature of my content and how I see myself professionally.

I always cringed at the former title “Library Science and the World Around Us”- as it sounded more like a soap opera title or a self help book, rather than a library related blog.

I hope you keep reading, as I know I will keep writing.

    I don’t think the old title was anything to cringe about. I just assumed that you were tipping your hat to the BBC parody series Look around you. It had the same old school feel. 😉

    Thanks for the vote of confidence. I guess I am a stickler for names. I originally had another blog called “Librartist” to encompass my thoughts as both a library science student as well as an artist. That made me feel even more uncomfortable, as it loomed eerily close to sounding like Liberace.

    I don’t have anything against Liberace; mind you. I thing the sequins and fur was swank, but something about his hair always creeped me out. And let’s not talk about his handling of the Beer Barrel Polka. 😛
