A few months ago Peter Chapman, editor of Refer approached me and Jo Alcock (after fellow blogger Jennie Law recommended us) to co-author an article on librarians and blogging for the Autumn edition of Refer: The Journal of the Information Services Group. Our article is now available online if you want to check it out.
Not only was this a really interesting article to research, but it was also a completely new experience for me in terms of collaboration. Although I’ve never met Jo I’ve known her for a few years now via social media websites like Facebook and Twitter. We made full advantage of a range of web 2.0 tools, such as wikis, blogs, microblogs and social bookmarking to write our article and it was an absolute pleasure to work with Jo on this project. Jo has also blogged about the process of co-authoing an article with somebody you’ve never met before!
Hope you enjoy the article!
