The Finale

I'm writing my last post #23. I've tried some things I've never heard of, experiemented with technology that I wasn't sure of and discovered many things that will be useful to me. I've registered and have passwords to places, I've never dreamed of.
I've already shared Shelfari and Librarything with customers and staff. I've passed an idea to use Lively in Teen progaming, I've shared google tools as an idea for staff to share with customers who are short on time and need to save time, and used it to create something I needed to have. I twittered, visited the sandbox and shared my experience with my family, who thought I was crazy!!! All in all it was a great experience, I grew in my knowledge and enjoyed the different challenges.
Here's to the next 23 things!

Blog Complete

I seem to have missed a blog moment, so here it is. I remember when I set up my blog, I wondered if I'd remember everything I needed to remember and if I'd make it through the 23 things. Well I lived to tell the tale.....Hooray!!!!


I downloaded a fiction title to listen to and found it to be easy and straightforward. I'm looking forward to growth in this technology. Someday we'll have download stations that will take the place of our collections, that never seem to be large enough!

While exploring a variety of mashups I happened upon this neat site that will allow me to add a variety of different things to one page. News, directions, weather, time, games, music video, blogs a one stop shopping experience. Check it out I hope you like it as much as I did.

I explored some podcast directories and was surprised to see the wealth of information out there. I listened to a couple things and added an RSS to my Bloglines.

I see this tool as another useful thing for the library. Could be used to convey information, news and could also be used as a training tool.

Both YouTube and Podcasts have great potential in the library world.


I love Youtube. What I've used this tool for in the past is to check out my grandson's latest trick. My daughter in law downloads videos so the family can check out his progress.

For library use, I think we could use this tool anytime the library has something they want to share. Customers love the visual media and are always looking for a video to help them do things, we could incorporate this technology to demonstrate how to use the new catalog, how to get a library card, promotion for storytimes, moldi, just to name a few things. Have the access right on the website for customers.

Almost like playing with colorforms. It was fun picking out rooms, furniture and my avatar. Of course this is something that could take hours of time playing around with . A fun way to pass some time, but I don't see this as something I will use with work.
