Blogs statt Fachzeitschriften?
Das schlägt Marcus Banks in seinem Weblog "Marcus' World" vor, denn "I became firmly convinced that the traditional journal model is antiquated for sharing research and knowledge among librarians. A better course is to develop and nurture excellent blogs, with multimedia capabilities and guaranteed preservation of the postings". Banks zitiert in diesem Zusammenhang Walt Crawford, der in der Ausgabe 7 (2007) 9 von Cites & Insights feststellte: "I believe that gray literature — blogs, this ejournal, a few similar publications and some lists — represents the most compelling and worthwhile literature in the library field today. To a great extent, the formal literature now serves as history, explication, formal results of formal research studies and background; the action is in the informal literature". - Hinweis aus davidrothman.net.
