Thing 3 RSS feeds  

Tuesday, February 19, 2008

I must admit that I never understood the point of RSS feeds, until now. So yea!! I'm learning something new. I had some feeds in Google Reader, but I never looked at it. However, thanks to Jeanne, who explained the point of Google Reader to me in very easy terms, I now am a fan of it. My current favorite RSS feed is the Combined library job postings. I get to look at job openings from all over the country. I also added the feed for my favorite blog, "Hey Pretty". I put up some library related blogs that I hope I will like and actually have time to read.

It is easy to see how it could be difficult to keep up with all the blogs and other sites and RSS can help to keep it "really simple"

Thing 2 cont.

I'm back to talk about what I think about Libraray 2.0. There really isn't much to say...Library 2.0 is important. There is no questioning how much libraries can do. The sad thing is that so many libraries are doing nothing in the 2.0 world. First of all, and I don't even think this is even really related to Lib 2.0, but a library's website is so important. I have seen so many horrible websites it just breaks my heart. In this day and age, it it not that difficult to hire someone, or find someone who already works at your library, to create a website that is functional, user friendly, and pleasing to the eye. That last one is what some systems seem to have a problem with. It is the age of the internet and people will not take you as seriously without a really great website.

Only once the great website is in place can libraries really begin to get involved and get their library customers involved in making an inclusive environment with Lib 2.0.

That said, I am now ready to learn about all these fun "things" so I can become part of the process of making the future of libraries an interactive world.

Okay, first thing everyone should know is that I am very good at procrastinating. I have every intention of finishing the 23 things on a stick, I just don't think it will be until right before they have to be done. I am, however, making some progress. I have just finished reading about library 2.0, but have not watched the video. I will be back later to tell you what I think about it.

Well, here I am starting my first blog. I wanted to post something and see what it looks like, but I am excited to really play around and see how I can make this blog unique to me. Hopefully by my next post and all the following posts, my blog will really be something special.

Au Revoir!
