Hectic Pace is a collection of thoughts, essays, pointers to other library thinkers and doers. It began in June 2006 as a blog supplement to Andrew Pace’s Technically Speaking column in American Libraries. That supplement lasted until December 2007. In 2008, the blog moved to the OCLC domain and ran until 2013. After a long hiatus, Hectic Pace was re-launched on its own domain. Past posts from its American Libraries run (2006-2007) and OCLC run (2008-2013) have been migrated to the hecticpace.com domain.
