Google Closes Librarian Central Blog And Opens It As a Newsletter

Google once opened a blog called Librarian Central to facilitate communication with librarians and now decides to close the blog and open it as a newsletter.

This is what Phil Bradley discovered and you can read his comments on the blog.

Communicating with the library community is not a priority for Google and definitely not one of the company's forte but the search giant needs to be a lot more careful when communicating with librarians because they are the only ones that have to explain how Google works to the public and this is actually part of the duties for almost every public librarian.

Otherwise the newly created Librarian Central newsletter has info on Google Book Search, Google Sky and Google Health. .

Lets see how often Google will update the newsletter and how current the info in it will be.
