The October 2012 issue of Cites & Insights (12:9) is now available for
downloading at

The issue is 24 pages long. A single-column 6x9" version, designed for
online reading (and optimized for online display rather than
printing), 46 pages long, is at (It's a much smaller file
than the two-column version, if that's an issue.)

The issue contains the following essays, available as HTML separates
through the links below (if you're viewing a web page) or from

The Front: Give Us a Dollar and We'll Give You Back Four (2012-2013) pp. 1-4

    Information on my new book, designed to be a tool for public
libraries aiming to improve or retain funding, including its
availability as an $11.99 PDF, $21.95 paperback or $31.50 hardcover.
While it's a tool, it's also an interesting set of detailed tables on
the activities of public libraries--if you're numerate, since the
tables deliberately lack textual commentary.

Words: Thinking About Blogging, Part 2 pp. 4-19

    The second part of the two-part essay that began in the September
2012 issue, this one's almost entirely by and about librarians and
libraries--and the stopping and starting of blogs.

Intersections: The Liblog Landscape: Where Are They Now? pp. 19-24

    Those of you who knew about the various studies under the rubric
"Liblog Landscape" may have figured out that there wasn't a 2011
version and isn't going to be a 2012 version. But I still had a
spreadsheet with the most complete list of English-language liblogs
ever assembled (I'm pretty sure)--and it only required a few hours to
see how the 1,304 liblogs that began before June 1, 2010 were doing in
late July 2012. This piece summarizes the results and links to a
webpage with that liblog list in two parts.
