Blog FAQs

Q: Do I need to be an editor to comment on this blog?

A:  No. If you only want to comment on entries here, you are welcome to. You only need to be an editor if you want to write blog entries here.

The rest of these questions apply to editors and would be editors.

Q: Who can be an editor on this blog?

Anyone who has taken either the Hyperlinked Library MOOC or the Hyperlinked Library from San Jose State University. If you would like to be an editor, send an e-mail to danielcornwall at gmail dot com. If you took the Hyperlinked Library rather than the MOOC, be sure to tell him that.

Q: Who owns the intellectual property on this blog?

A: Like Michael and Kyle did for the course, we’re committed to
providing our blog posts under  a
Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License.

People would provide attribution this way – [Blog author] at [website
of editor’s choice].  Full details will be provided on our copyright page.

Q: Who runs this blog, anyway:?

A: You do! Cath, Evan and I are your humble surveyors and Daniel Cornwall is  handling editor registrations for now. But our intention is that all blog
editors are equal stakeholders. Ideally we’ll operate under consensus,
but there may be times we’ll have to settle for majority rule.

Q: How often are we expected to write?

A: That’s up to you. Write when you feel like.

Q: What can we write about?

A: That’s pretty flexible too, though it would be great if it related
to one of the HL module topics or something cool in libraries or

Q: Do we have individual blogs on this site like we did at the course?

A: Nope. We are all author/editors on one blog. As far as I know the
BuddyPress software that made the MOOC site possible has no free
hosted version. If anyone knows different, speak up now!

All of your posts will appear with your name and for now your latest
three post titles will appear in the sidebar.

Our theme/skin can change if a majority would like it to change.
