California State Library Blog & Wikipedia Page

I think this blogging thing is catching on. The California State Library has just uploaded their blog http://blog.library.ca.gov This blog will help support the CSL's mission and also provide a way for folks to communicate with the state library.

I suspect that the page is ADA compliant. The text is much larger than I am use to seeing on a page. The background is color neutral. It is a good thing to be aware of and put into practice.

The real kick is that the state Library has put up its own Wikipedia page.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/California_State_Library

It gives full information about what the state library does, the branches and a great link to the California Research Bureau. If you want to know about the issues and regulations that affect dogs on California beaches this is your place.

It is an intriguing question. What if more librarians and library workers claimed ownership of Wikipedia pages?
