I set up an RSS feed last week which took longer than I thought. I am subscribing to two news services, one national and one local, a celebrity gossip web site and a co-worker’s blog. Some news services wouldn’t let me sign up when I clicked on the RSS feed button. I got some wierd html display. Others gave me too many choices of which feed I want. Now I have over 100 feeds to read since last Friday.
I will try to blog each week about each Thing. It was interesting to read all the stuff about Library 2.0 but even better to read the “Comments”. I jotted down about five snipets of quotes from the reading materials. #1-“Creating a Library where these tools can be appreciated that will get the job done”. #2-“Develop a Library that will grow and change with technology.” #3-“If Libraries want to be a useful source, then they have to be willing to change”. #4 “Basic drive is to get people back into the Library”. #5-“Best thing a librarian can do is to learn more about these tools and how they figure into our libraries”.
