Who writes the prompts for the "Blog Topic of the Moment"? I am a little sorry for that writer, because our library community is slow to respond. I'm here to tell the poster -- don't worry, we'll catch on!
My thoughts on partnerships:
* More minds make for better overall results for any project
* More hands makes for more fun and less overwhelming tasks
State Librarian Ann Joslin presented to the Senate Affairs Committee and was picked up by the Associated Press as breaking news! Stacks is breaking news! So cool... http://www.localnews8.com/Global/story.asp?S=9867713&nav=menu554_1_1
We're collecting state documents, though, and not public records!
Welcome to the ICFL interactive web world...my first entrance into the realm of blogging with and for librarians....sweet!
Currently reading Little Brother by Cory Doctorow and Micro-EcoFarming by Barbara Berst-Adams. I believe that the topics presented in the two books (privacy, self-sustainable farming) represent a true path to freedom.
Pro libertate usque ad finem
Idaho librarians have the opportunity to make their voices heard by voting for Idaho’s suggestions for upcoming summer reading themes. The Collaborative Summer Library Program (CSLP) has asked each member state to send their top five suggestions for the 2011 kids theme and 2011 teen theme using the topic World Culture/Travel.
Can you say, "Stacks Stats" ten times fast?
Stacks is the new name for the Idaho Digital Repository! Think of the stacks and stacks of information, all easily findable with a quick search. We harvest the digital content on all of the state's web sites and make them findable, too.
I'm working on a project to test how well webcams would work for communication between the Idaho Commission for Libraries (ICFL) and the Idaho library community.
If you/your library has a webcam and would be willing to help us with one or two short online meetings, please contact me.
What I'm asking of you:
There are a lot of good things coming for the LiLI eAudioBooks Collection users. The first thing is Media Center.
I subscribe to Google Blog Alerts and last week a Toastmaster's blog came through mentioning that LILI now subscribes to Vital Speeches via ProQuest Central.
