Since July 2006, a group of Australian Librarians have co-ordinated the group blog (LINT). This blog was created as a forum for professional communication and discussion of change in the Australian library sector. Communication and planning is conducted using a variety of web tools including an email list, instant messaging, collaborative bookmarking and a wiki. This paper compares the experience of the LINT authors with that of other authors of collaborative library blogs, as reported in a survey of the library blogosphere in September 2007.
