That’s four librar* blogs here at ScienceBlogs, of course, with hopefully more to come. We’re taking over!
I’ll let Dorothea introduce herself:
I’m very pleased to welcome you all to The Book of Trogool, a brand-new blog about e-research. My name is Dorothea Salo, I’m an academic librarian, and I am fascinated with the changes that computers have wrought in the academic-research enterprise. I hope to explore those changes, and particularly library responses to them, in the company of the wonderful ScienceBlogs community. My thanks to John, Christina, and Walt for paving the way, and to Erin for welcoming me here.
I hope to tell stories about e-research projects (because narrative is how humans come to grips with novelty), pass on tidbits of e-research-related news, demystify jargon, ask and answer questions–in toto, I hope to bridge the science, library, and IT communities as we all work to understand, accommodate, and make the most of computers in research.
And yes, she does explain the name of her new blog.
