This week we want to see what’s up in our neighbourhood and take a look at the biblioblogosphere in Austria. Austria is a country of early adopters, as it seems. In his blog “Bibliothek 2.0” Mark Buzinkay writes that for example the Library of the Medical University of Vienna pioneers work in realising a library 2.0 concept. WLAN, a library blog, data query via PDA, a PDA mailinglist, and the scheduled composition of a wiki as an in-house information tool are innovative services the library provides.
Our guest author Monika Bargmann will point out if the biblioblogosphere in Austria is surfing the same tide. She is working in the library of the University of Applied Sciences as a librarian and cybrarian. Through her private main blog she is also known as Library Mistress.
