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! 🙂
