Final Thoughts

Posted by lizzybee1002 on December 18, 2007

Just like the Jerry Springer show there needs to be a moment were we get to share final thoughts with the audience. I am so glad I took LIS768 because it really opened up my technology world so that I could see the changes that could be made to the average library. The idea that we could complete amazing things for very little money.

The idea of library 2.0 needs to be embraced so that libraries can stay relevant and not fall to the way-side like so many industries of the past. Libraries need to stay current so that children and adults will still use the amazing services. Wha’s the phrase, “the enemy of my enemy is my friend” isn’t that true about technology and libraries, for all the “old school” librarians that don’t want to use technology or don’t see the need for it need to embrace the technology to make more positive changes.

So as Jerry would say, “Be good to yourself and each other.” 🙂

Del.icio.us

Posted by lizzybee1002 on December 11, 2007

You can access my del.icio.us roll on the left hand side of my blog and it focuses on new library 2.0 topics and what others are saying.  I also have a focus on podcasting for articles for my paper and for Apple Computers because my MAC is my newest obsession.  del.icio.us is a useful site because I can capture random articles and sites that I may never have stumbled upon a second time after that one article.  del.icio.us also helped me find some new blogs and keep up with the technology and social networking sites that are out there to help me refine my searches and get even more information that I already had been with my RSS Feeder.

I will most likely keep up my del.icio.us account after this class and go back to the articles that I saved to keep up with the trends that are out there and to reference in later classes since I am only half way through with my MLS.
