wyoming librarians on the web

While it’s true that Chicago still ranks as the center of the library webiverse, we’re not doing too badly out here in the West.  Here are a few Wyoming librarians I know of on the web.  If you are one and aren’t listed here, or if you know of others, please let me know, and I’ll add them. 

Meg Martin and Katie Jones run the Library Law Letter, which contains “summaries for recently decided Wyoming Supreme Court opinions and Wyoming State Law Library Information: announcements, how-to tips, and services.”  I’ve already learned several good things from their tips, and they’ve given me some great law-related collection development advice.

A librarian at the University of Wyoming in Laramie runs a blog called Jag soker job (that o in “soker” should have an umlaut over it, but my keyboard skills are lacking), and she’s got a Flickr account with some gorgeous photos of Wyoming scenery. 

Erin Kinney, the Digital Initiatives Librarian at the Wyoming State Library, has been adding photos all summer to a Flickr set on the state library’s relocation

  1. Thanks for linking to my site, Laura. I recently found you and now you’re in my bloglines. It’s great to see other Wyoming librarians online!

  2. Awesome! Thanks for the link love. It’s absolutely wonderful to see the great work you’re doing for our Wyoming libraries. You’ll be one to bring us kicking and screaming into the 2.0 world!

  3. I’d like to think that it’s not kicking and screaming, and that dragging isn’t involved–though sometimes a few encouraging words are in order. 2.0 tools are the right thing for some patrons and some libraries in some places; older technologies are right for others. I’m fairly certain there’s a happy medium to be found, even if we have to muddle our way there sometimes. 🙂
