I gather that the original list was not in any particular order, so neither is this list. Nearly all have RSS feeds to make it easy for you to follow them--so do it!

Librarian.net, Jessamyn West, a rural, circuit-riding librarian/tech consultant, has “what is thought to be ‘the first single-editor library-oriented weblog.’” http://www.librarian.net

David Lee King, Digital Branch and Services Manager at the Topeka and Shawnee Public Library, tells us about the wonderful things he’s doing at his cutting edge library. http://www.davidleeking.com

Information Wants to be Free, from Meredith Farkas at Norwich University. Technology-oriented. http://meredith.wolfwater.com/wordpress/

Stephen’s Lighthouse should be on your must-read list. It is, from one of my favorite people, Stephen Abram, VP of Innovation for SirsiDynix, the big integrated library software vendor. He is also one of the profession’s premier forward thinkers. Plus, he travels all over the world and reads voraciously, thus keeping us up-to-date on just about everything library. http://stephenslighthouse.sirsidynix.com/

Another of my favorite people, Michael Stephens, is a librarian turned professor (at Dominican University). He blogs on information technology and social networking, among other topics at Tame the Web. He’s big on customer service. http://tametheweb.com/

Jenny Levine left the library for a post at the American Library Association, but is still writing on technology and how we react to it on her blog, The Shifted Librarian. http://theshiftedlibrarian.com

LISNews, founded by Blake Carver, is produced by a group of librarians and covers the news of the library world (especially technology). http://www.lisnews.org/

Librarian in Black is the baby of Sarah Houghton-Jan, digital futures manager, San Jose (California) Public Library. Tech news mostly. http://librarianinblack.typepad.com/

Law Librarian Blog covers more than the legal field, especially on Fridays when it posts on the funny or unusual. From Joe Hodnicki (Butler County [Ohio] Law Library) and Ron Jones (University of Cincinnati Law Library) and a part of the Law Professors Blog Network. http://lawprofessors.typepad.com/law_librarian_blog/
