Abstract Librarians have to learn how to do a lot with just a little in order to promote awareness of their programs and services. They have seized the opportunities to market libraries in the real world via traditional media: newspapers, corporate newsletters, radio, and TV. Many libraries produce brochures, pathfinders, and their own newsletters. So it is no surprise to see librarians stepping up to the plate and spreading the word online with blogs. Savvy librarians have identified blogs as another means to market libraries and their services. The article discuses basics of blogs, like history, types, features and limitations. And also it explains how it’s useful for librarians. Finally, few samples of Library blogs are presented and explained to highlight the importance of blogs in libraries.
