As the blog you're reading has grown in coverage and complexity these last fifteen months, two threads have emerged: the one centering on the art and material culture represented by AAOA and the Goldwater Library; the other, issues surrounding museum library practices, including using socially networked software (such as blogs, wikis, &c.).
As the museum continues to grapple internally with issues surrounding the role of blogs in overall web content generation, it seems counter-intuitive for these issues to be treated solely within the blog itself and for what is under current policy a restricted audience. It's a discussion that would benefit greatly by being opened to a larger librarian and researcher audience. What's more, it might draw attention to the Goldwater Library blog as well as generate suggestions for refinements and improvements.
After prodding from my blog colleagues I inaugurated the library of primitive art blog to capture the 'meta'-discussion which the Goldwater Library blog has engendered. The primary authors of the Goldwater Library blog, namely Joy and Erika, have graciously agreed to participate in the LOPA blog as well.
I invite everyone to take a look for him- or herself. Please make allowances for its newness and the inexperience of its creator. And feel free to post comments or contact me directly with your thoughts.
