David Lee King posted about the use of the Meebo widget in the Topeka library catalog and then posted again about the responses to his post about using the widget.  All interesting conversations.

Creating a useful library catalogkepitcher

Tue, 11 Dec 2007 16:19:45 +0000

A colleague of mine at work forwarded information about this to our reference librarians, but I just read about it on Jenny Levine’s blog: the idea of using Meebo’s IM widget in the library catalog to create a user-librarian interaction at the point of need. Our library has gone back and forth about using IM […]

Good post on Infoblog about best Web 2.0 practices and the library catalog.  The idea of cross-promotion within the library by way of library catalog is a good use of Web 2.0 technologies to manufacture interest in the library and what we are doing.

Tue, 20 Nov 2007 20:07:57 +0000

Insightful post by Library Chic:  the future of web services is NOT the library website.  She dares speak the thought no one names.  I’m not too sure librarians are ready to hear this, especially at institutions where they have spent lots of time (read: $$) invested in redesigning and assessing their websites.  She makes some […]

Today I am at RRLC, at a presentation by Sara Greenleaf of Hobart & William Smith Colleges.  Sara’s presentation is available on SlideShare and is chock full of good resources on 2.0 technology.  This makes me think some more about trying to develop some staff and faculty training on 2.0 technologies; maybe with an Information Management […]

The LIS Wiki is a great encyclopedia by librarians, for librarians and it has an entry on Library 2.0 which is always being updated and serves as a good primer for those new to the term Library 2.0 and all its various meanings.

Video on social networkingkepitcher

Great video about social networking from the folks at Common Craft.  This would be a  neat intro for a workshop or class for beginners. Common Craft (Lee & Sachi LeLever) create all kinds of videos on Web 2.0 topics for the non-techie web user.

Podcasts not meeting the hype?kepitcher

Thu, 18 Oct 2007 20:29:12 +0000

I have to admit, reading this story was a bit depressing, considering the investment of time we are putting into podcasting here at my library.  Yahoo! is closing down its podcast directory and rumors are it is because of low interest and the closing of their entertainment divisioin…
