The Pop Goes the Library Wiki contains the full Appendix A (Core Pop Culture Resources for Library Professionals) and Appendix D (Websites Listed In Chapter Order) found in the book. It’s not gorgeous, but it is functional, and we’re feeling our way towards something resembling expertise with MediaWiki. Thanks for bearing with us.
Here’s where you can find the big list of Blogs and Websites from Appendix A.
It started with Sophie’s blog, Pop Goes the Library.
Next came the book proposal.
Then there was the writing. I’m old school; my original drafts all had to be handwritten. It’s how I think best.
And then transcribed into the computer, saved, and shared with Sophie.
And then revisions flew back and forth, and true to form, I needed to print out to revise. Using red ink, of course.
And finally, after we had both written and rewritten and revised each chapter, off it went to the publisher, looking like this. (Plus, also, an electronic format.)
And then, somehow, it became a real live book….which we will unveil as soon as we have a copy in our hands!
Well, this is all very real, isn’t it? Pop Goes the Library: Using Pop Culture to Connect With Your Whole Community will be published on August 11, and we couldn’t be happier or more excited. This blog and accompanying wiki will be your online companion to the book, allowing us to keep the book’s central messages, tips, and ideas relevant by keeping all of our links up to date.
Here at the blog, we’ll post previews of portions of the book, links to reviews, online sources for the book, information about upcoming book-related events, and so on. We’ll also post here whenever we publish major revisions to the wiki.
The wiki is where we’ll keep the book’s many (many) links fresh & updated.
We love feedback, suggestions, tips, and, well, people just saying “hi.” So please, comment away here at the blog or send us an email at popgoesthebook at gmail.com.
Thanks so much for reading!
