A student from the University of the West of England named Keir Hopwood has created a blog, which details their MSc ILM research project on UK academic library blogs .http://ukbiblioblogosphere.blogspot.com/
The main purpose of the blog is to detail the progress and any interesting milestones in the research and writing process itself.
The part which caught our eye is that Keir has created an updated "directory" of UK academic library blogs at http://del.icio.us/ukbiblioblogosphere - And as you would expect, it includes our own ScHARR Library Blog in the list.
Obviously like all online lists and driectories, they are almost impossible to keep up to date and are rarely a comprehensive collection. Nevertheless, this looks a useful reflection of the current state of play in the land of academic library blogs.
