Week 4, Thing #9 Library blogs
Checked out all the search tools listed on the page and found Technorati, Google Blog Search and the Blogging Libraries wiki the most useful and the easiest to use. Bloglines search tool required quotes around my string of search terms so that they appeared together and not randomly. The Google Blog Search was quick but the blogging libraries wiki was right on target with less distracting type and advertising. I tried Blog Pulse to see what tracking conversations was all about. I broadened my search term from school library learning 2.0 to library just to see what would happen. It was interesting but not quite what I expected or needed.
