Wild Card – Reference 2.0stephanielibrarian

Fri, 06 Jun 2008 22:42:50 +0000

I am interested in virtual reference, so I browsed through the Reference 2.0 sites. Based on my short review, these sites seem to mainly provide answers or advice based on individual or collective knowledge, an approach usually different than reference where we answer most questions by providing a resource (print or online) for the customer.

Podcasts, Vodcasts, and YouTubestephanielibrarian

This was fun! Finding the space and time to listen to a podcast and hear the sound for the video is a challenge in my library. I thought it would work well this morning when we’re not open, but the vacuum cleaner was running on and off! A few random observations on this experience – […]

Social Networksstephanielibrarian

Ning is fun and I love the name! I’m curious to see if the library staff I invited will join the Library 2.0 network. In searching for other networks, I noticed that some libraries have set up their own networks within Ning; one close by is Fremont Public Library. Maybe that is something we want […]

I tried to blog about RSS last week, but I’ll have to complain about wordpress causing the delay. The site was extremely slow, and so I was continually timed-out. But, back to RSS. It was a great exercise!! I have had a bloglines account for a while now and use it to subscribe to a […]

Well, I’ve just IM’d for the first time! From my perspective, it was easy to use and fun! I don’t know about setup and other technical issues, but it could be helpful, fun, AND cool to use IM for less complicated reference questions.

Google Documentsstephanielibrarian

Great exercise – simple, concise, and I felt as if I learned something! Unfortunately, though, the document I chose to upload was one that I use to teach Internet classes and is formatted to print on 2 pages. I lost a lot of the formatting when I uploaded it – type and size of fonts, […]

I had set up a account previously, but I followed the complete exercise and set up a new account and added a few bookmarks. The process of tagging and bundling was a frustrating experience for me as the tags I created were delayed in displaying for two days! Once the tags displayed today, I […]

Wikis vs. Blogsstephanielibrarian

Wed, 14 May 2008 02:37:42 +0000

One of the results in my google search for ‘wikis vs. blogs’ made the point that facilitator control in a wiki can be set at a level where comments and posts are pre-screened. This capability can be used to edit viewpoints and therefore limit the range of discussion. In this case, the main difference between […]
