The Travelin’ Librarian

18 Sep

I have written very briefly about this particular blog about a year ago. I also follow the author on Google+! I am talking about The Travelin’ Librarian, Michael Sauers.¬†His current title is Technology Innovation Librarian for the Nebraska Library Commission in Lincoln Nebraska. How awesome is that title? I’m a bit jealous.

Michael’s blog is one of the first blogs I subscribed to once I started Library School and have loved reading his updates. This blog is really a little bit about everything but it includes a lot about how to incorporate technology into the library. He does a lot of presentations as well which he graciously posts! Thank you! And it doesn’t hurt that he is a big Doctor Who Geek like me! ūüėČ

I wanted to focus on this blog because I feel like his tech based posts and presentations have been very useful for me. For instance, he recently posted about Internet Librarian 2012 which is a conference that covers topics, you guessed, covering the Internet and it’s uses in the Library!

He also posts information videos that he has either recorded himself or has found around the web on topics like Public Speaking, Networks/Security/Hardware/Troubleshooting, and Social Searching for Librarians. I think he posts great resources for students as well as Librarians.

Of course I don’t have the stats on his blog, so I can’t really say how popular his site is within the blogoshere, but I know for me it works. I think the content that he posts, and the manner in which he writes helps to make the information¬†accessible¬†by pretty much anyone. He doesn’t talk in jargon or talk over your head, he writes like you are having a conversation with him and I can appreciate that.
