Year in Blogging

Well, folks, our annual report for PLP’s blog has been published.  It’s clear that some of our member libraries are viewing us, some spammers from other countries are spamming us, and Conan the Librarian is always popular.  If you have any suggestions for content you’d like to see on this blog, or if you would like to contribute pieces to it, or want to just get more involved by commenting on it, please send us a message by commenting in this post, or through contacting the PLP office.
