Description

The biblioblogosphere comprises the personal, typically professional-oriented publication of blogs by information and library science practitioners, researchers, and educators. This poster presents preliminary findings from a descriptive study examining bibliobloggers’ attitudes and preferences for digital preservation, and their respective blog publishing behaviors and blog characteristics influencing preservation action. Findings will be compared to those from an earlier study of blogging scholars from the fields of history, economics, law, biology, chemistry and physics. When considering their dual role as publishers contributing to the scholarly record and, in reflection of their professional roles, work relating to stewardship of this record, bibliobloggers present an exceptional case to extend and better understand the phenomenon of blogging in academe and implications for long-term stewardship of this form.
