Origin of ‘Biblioblogosphere’

Did you know the term ‘biblioblogosphere’ refers to the community of librarian bloggers and library blogs? Karen Schneider, the Free Range Librarian, first used the term way back in 2004. Which means…this blogging term is approaching four years old. This is older than YouTube and the concept of Library 2.0 (both from 2005). Hooray for the biblioblogosphere pioneers! 

Check out Karen’s original use of ‘biblioblogosphere’ here and her subsequent elucidation on the term here.
