road signs

When it comes to blogs, we know you have a wide choice of library industry sites to read, so we thank you for selecting our blog to look over today. We hope you have a great day here in blogland, or wherever your final destination may be.

[Photo:] We promise not to (virtually) do this to you

If you haven’t figured it out yet, this is going to be a little more casual in tone than other librarian/researcher blogs you already read. We’re going to have fun here. That said, we’re not professional comedians … so we’ll be able to tell by the web traffic reports if our jokes go flat. Or by your comments, which we encourage, jokes or not.

Why do a blog?

Good question. Now that there are 2.6 blogs per person on the face of the earth (a totally made-up statistic), not to mention the myriad number of funny videos, cat jokes, event landing pages, creative whitepapers, colorful infographics, cool webinars, and other Internet content that demands your time, it stands to reason that we could get lost in a sea of competition. And, we’re late getting to it.

Overall, what we’re trying to do is provide customers (meaning, librarians, and people who use libraries for research) with valuable and original content about the publishing and library industries. Of course, we’re occasionally going to let you know about new things we’re working on, updates to current products, and provide links to new training, or info on ProQuest products. But we’re going to work hard at keeping the marketing/sales aspect to a minimum.

It’s all about YOU

This is the part of the post where we tell you we’d appreciate your feedback, comments, suggestions/ideas, anecdotes, testimonials, and cool cat video links, what-have-you. Please tell us what you want to read about, discuss and debate.

Because we really do want to know. Truly.
