Competency #2

OH-Cataloging located at is a blog for the Ohio cataloging community. I found it using GoogleBlog. It covers all kinds of things, and looks like it would be very helpful for that community. What a great idea! I chose this blog because it is a great example of how a blog can assist a community, such as the Ohio cataloging community, to communicate about various items of interest. Here's a quote: "OH-Cataloging is a compilation of classes, conferences, job postings, innovative things that people are doing, and anything else happening in the Ohio cataloging community. "

Competency #1

A blog gives anyone the opportunity to speak out on whatever interests or opinions that they may have. It's great for people who have a lot to say and think others might benefit from reading their thoughts. It's great for discussing ideas with people you might never meet. It's a great way to communicate with friends and family. I'm beginning my first blog experience with my interest in cataloging at an academic library. The purpose of this blog is to satisfy the requirements of my class, and also to explore information in the area of cataloging.
