US National Agricultural Library launches its blog

The National Agricultural Library (NAL) has joined the web 2.0 movement! This month it set up a blog - InfoFarm - where it is hoped that NAL staff and partners will enter into conversations.

In her October 1 opening entry, NAL's blogger in chief Mary Ann Leonard explains why NAL set up the blog:

"We want to give this great national library a human, personal voice; to give you a fresh glimpse into what we do; and to give us a chance to hear from you."

Interestingly the email announcement of the blog includes a disclaimer which says that the blog "does not necessarily represent the official views or formal communications of USDA, of NAL, or of the array of organizations represented by NAL’s customers and partners." However, it "aligns well with library standards encouraging the open and free exchange of information in support of an educated and informed citizenry."
