Wow! Hard to believe when this all started I could read all the posts by all the bloggers. Now I couldn’t if I wanted to, never mind the tweets.
Some numbers from Round 8 of the Library Day in the Life Project,
Twitter has made it increasingly hard to get data from Tweets by closing access for services such as WhattheHashTag and TwapperKeeper, so I don’t have the numbers from Twitter like I have in the past. My best estimate is that there were over 1,000 people tweeting with the #libday8 hashtag.
From the wiki:
- 350 people have registers
- 20 Countries including: Australia, Austria, Canada, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Hungary, Israel, Latvia, Mongolia, New Zealand, Scotland, Serbia, South Africa, Sweden, The Netherlands, Tobago & Trinidad, England, USA, Wales
- 15 types of libraries including:academic, art, corporate, college, media, school, health, government, independent, law, museum, news, non-profit, public, research, special. It also include participants from library associations, vendors, and consulting and contracting agencies.
I’ve mapped out the participants below. I am so pleased and proud that this has grown to a truly international project. (Hopefully we will be able to add more from Asia and South America next round)

Thanks to Andromeda for inspiring me to learn how to make a map of participants, though I used a different method.
Thank you to everyone who participated, helped me troubleshoot, and brainstormed with me!

What method did you end up using? Always looking for new tricks (& hopefully you figured out an easier way 🙂 Sorry I didn’t get the chance to update.
I used this website http://batchgeo.com/. You just paste in the excel data and it does the rest! Like magic! But with ads. Cuz ain’t nothin’ free 😉
Very cool. Look what you started! I particularly enjoyed flipping through the pictures.
