The Library of Congress Has a Blog

The bar has been raised. You LoC groupies better get on board, and fast! Says Director of Communications Matt Raymond about the blog's purpose:
It’s probably a bit early to come up with some sort of grand “mission statement” for this blog, but it will be in keeping with the spirit of the Library’s mission as a whole: “to make its resources available and useful to the Congress and the American people and to sustain and preserve a universal collection of knowledge and creativity for future generations.”
In addition to all this it also happens to contain the Library of Congress equivalent of gossip. Which is to say, juicy selection begin with sentences like, "This morning I attended the spring business meeting of the James Madison Council, the Library’s private-sector advisory body, created in 1990 by Librarian of Congress James Billington." Needless to say, sexy shoes are not discussed.

Thanks to A Different Stripe for the link.
