Why So Many Questions?

In addition to a walk-through of how to set up a blog, the Blog Boot Camp seminar will also hold an open forum for panelists and audience members to discuss and query each other about best practices, issues, and some of the challenges of getting a special collections blog launched and –the sometimes even more difficult challenge– of maintaining one over time.

In preparing for the seminar, we came up with a list of questions that we thought zeroed in on some core issues. I’ll be posting them here, one by one, with some initial thoughts. If you’d like to respond or offer up some reflections, please do! This blog is meant to be a hub for discussion, before and after the 2008 RBMS conference. Feel free to post links to your own blog(s) if you’ve discussed aspects of the question already. And if you’d like to raise an additional question, please feel free to email me so I can introduce the topic at the seminar and here.

After the seminar is complete– and after a mandatory post-ALA holidays!– the presentation we’ve created as well as our supporting documentation will be posted to this blog.

Let’s get started!
