Public Libraries & Web Logs

No one cares that you have a blog…
Aaron Schmidt

It isn’t about the technology (for the patrons)

It is about Connecting (and what they can do with your web site)

Example: Lamson Library at Plymouth State University

Cool tools to add stuff to your Blog

  • Flickr
    • Post from flickr
    • Create badges
  • New Materials on Flickr
    • Westmont Library (pictures of new books, with added notes with direct links into opac)
  • Firefox 2.0
    • Built in spell check
    • Auto RSS tool
  • MeeboMe
