Another digital reference blog

How could I have missed another blog with a name just ever so slightly different from mine? The MINITEX Digital Reference blog has archived posts going back to July 2006. I wish I had been subscribing to the blog from its inception, as there's been a lot of good content published in the past year. I'm going to take a close look now at all the blog posts that offer detailed notes about each session from the Collaborative Virtual Reference Symposium that took place in July in Denver (please note that the links below may require you to scroll to get to the actual post):

Stephen, I'm using Technorati to locate new vr posts/blogs. There's a lot of duplicates and references to Gale, but I don't mind the noise because they've helped me discover a lot of great posts.

http://technorati.com/search/%22digital+reference%22

http://technorati.com/search/(%22instant+message%22+OR+%22instant+messaging%22)+AND+(library+OR+libraries)+AND+reference

Google Blog search is not working as well for this topic.

Thanks for the tip. I'm already monitoring monitoring Technorati's RSS feed for items tagged "virtual reference" but hadn't thought to do that for "digital reference" or "("instant message" OR "instant messaging") AND (library OR libraries) AND reference."

FYI, I also recommend monitoring del.icio.us for items tagged "virtual reference" or "digital reference":
