I joined Facebook and invited some friends to join me. I added photos and joined some Library groups. This looks like it will be fun!

Using Overdrive

I used Overdrive to put Black Rose by Nora Roberts, I still prefer holding a book in my hand to read. But I think it is a very useful application.

I think podcasts are very interesting. I found a great one on Digg. This is a podcast on Autism. It is a series. I added it to my RSS feed. I am a visual learner therefore I learn better by having material in my hands and reading.

U Tube: Librarians working with special needs customers


I chose this video, because I think this is an important topic that is not discussed enough. We have many customers using library services with special needs, but we are not always helping them in the best way for that individual. This is partially due to lack of training in this area.

web 2.0 Awards

I looked at some of the sites and I like the Medstory one the best. I gave accurate and up to date information on medical conditions.

Zoho word writer

I am trying this new word processing program. I like the idea of being able to retrieve my documents from every computer. I tried to import a Power Point Presentation to the slide show and it froze and I had to restart the application. Let's see what pictures I can insert. I can't find how to inset pictures. This is frustrating for me.

Tried and Tried

I tried and tried to link the to my blog. I am totally lost. So I gave up.

What I think about Wikis

A Wiki is a place for information. I have used Wikipedia several times, however, I never know if they are true facts or not. Anyone can post a Wiki.

I like the website I think it has a lot of useful information. As stated on the main page introduction "This wiki was created to be a one-stop shop for great ideas and information for all types of librarians. All over the world, librarians are developing successful programs and doing innovative things with technology that no one outside of their library knows about. There are lots of great blogs out there sharing information about the profession, but there is no one place where all of this information is collected and organized. That's what we're trying to do."

But how is this site authenticated? These are just random peoples do we know if they are accurate?

My Rollyo, not easy to understand!

Picassa and Flickr

There are many photo sharing sites on the web these days. However there are differences between them. Some are easier than others, some have more options. It is hard to choose between them. For example. Flickr offers 100 MB of free storage. Picassa offers just 1 GB of storage space. Through Picasa, you can do basic image editing (like crop, rotate, color adjustments, etc) and then upload the edited pictures online. But when using Flickr you can interact with the photographs. Flickr turns an image into a virtual whiteboard where people can scribble text notes.

Those are some of the differences between them. Use them both and have fun!

A Long Day

Today is my late night, I work until 9, but I am teaching tonight so I am happy. I like teaching class. I am teaching MS Word III. Last night I taught Photo Shop for the first time. It was hard, but the students liked it and said they learned a lot.

Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.
