Libraries & Transliteracy Receives 1st Place in Salem Press Blog Awards

[tweetmeme source=”librarianbyday” only_single=false]Salem Press recently announced the winners of it’s Library Blog Awards and we were excited to learn that this blog, Libraries and Transliteracy was first place in the General Blogs category. First, second and third place awards were given in five categories: General Interest BlogsQuirky BlogsAcademic Library BlogsPublic Library Blogs and School Library Blogs.

About the Awards

Blogs about libraries have spread across the web. There are (literally) hundreds of people writing about books, libraries, librarians and related subjects. If you count the blogs that come from specific institutions, spreading local news, there are thousands of the things. Some are funny. Some are brilliant. Others… aren’t.

This area of our website is devoted to blogosphere excellence. Salem (and the bloggers and librarians who are helping with this effort) are attempting to promote good blogs generally and draw attention to interesting and provocative news and opinion as it appears. To that end we will:

  • Reward and celebrate blogs about libraries and library issues
  • Maintain a (reasonably) accurate listing of blogs so librarians
  • Develop a site that points out ongoing excellence as it appears.

The winners in each of the five categories of “topical” library blogging we established are:

General Library Blogs

Quirky Library Blogs

Academic Library Blogs

Public Library Blogs

School Library Blogs

Congratulations to you all.
