Are you reading this post via a feed reader? If so, read on…

On Tuesday May 31st we’re going to change the categories on this blog, so if by any chance you’re using a feed of a specific category, that’s going to break. We suggest subscribing to the whole blog for maximum enjoyment! If you’re not a LIS staff member & would like to filter out the more staff related posts, you can subscribe to the new “Middlebury Community Interest” category after May 31st. The other categories will be “LIS Staff Interest”, and “Post for MiddPoints” which will cause the post to be added to the MiddPoints blog too. All the old categories except “The Essentials” will be converted to tags for easy searching.
The LIS Web team developed this new scheme, following recommendations that came out of the open meeting about the future of the LIS Blog (including a call for simplified categories). The AD Team reviewed and approved these changes. We welcome your comments.

    This also applies to email subscriptions for all the current categories on this blog. e.g. if you’re using Outlook (2007 or 2010) to subscribe to RSS for The Essentials or any other category, make sure you update your feed after May 31st.

    By the way, an average of 64 people over the last month should answer “yes” to the question posed in this post’s title. The most popular posts among subscribers during that time have been Do Macs get viruses? (or “Just say NO to MACDefender”).”, LIS Spring Focus, Friday links roundup (the one with the Symposium video), and Area 51 notes, Apr. 21, 2011.

    The LIS blog has RSS subscribers in Russia, South Korea, Denmark, China, Finland, Canada, the United Kingdom, and Mexico. Most of our subscribers use Google Reader (39), but 8 use the Outlook 2007 RSS reader and 5 use the Windows desktop reader. These figures only include people subscribed to the main feed.
