Library and Information Week

This week is Library and Information Week in Australia -- 19-25 of May.

What am I doing?

I'm coordinating a carnival of the infosciences over at Libraries Interact. While you are reading blogs or writing blog posts this week, consider nominating one or more for inclusion in the carnival to be published on Monday the 26th.

What's a blog carnival? According to Wikipedia:

A blog carnival is a type of blog event. It is similar to a
magazine, in that it is dedicated to a particular topic, and is published on a
regular schedule, often weekly or monthly. Each edition of a blog carnival is in
the form of a blog article that contains permalinks links to other blog
articles on the particular topic.

There are many variations, but typically, someone who wants to organize a
carnival posts details of the theme or topic to their blog, and asks readers to
submit relevant articles for inclusion in an upcoming edition. The host then
collects links to these submissions, edits and annotates them (often in very
creative ways), and publishes the resulting round-up to his or her

Send your nominations to blogadmin@librariesinteract.info.
