    1. You are welcome and thank you for the nice comment. I stopped writing the blog in April 2019 so the reports section is now slightly out of date. You might also want to check out the Library Orgs page, which highlights what a fragmented profession we are!

      You can following my current ramblings via Twitter @librareon.

      Best wishes.
