  • Google How Search Works

    As a trainer I like sites like this new one from Google that show you how stuff works. How Search Works goes in to a lot of detail about how search engines work. I thought it might be a useful resource for those of you who teach web ...

  • Open Open Source Options for Education

    OSS Watch has published a list of open source options for education that I think might be helpful to many of you. This document presents options for open source software for use in the education sector. Some of these may have uses outside of education, but they are presented ...

My Famous Hubby

Yesterday my husband got some great news! He has recently designed a card game (a fun one) and a small game company wants him to send them a copy so they can decide if they want to distribute it. He was also mentioned on a gamer podcast!! I just had to share!

Keep track of comments

FINALLY! Just what I was looking for. coComment let’s you keep track of your comments on other blogs – and any comments that come after yours! Installing the handy extension for Firefox makes it so that a little bar appears under the comment box on the blog page you’re on. You can click the track box to keep track of your comment and the ones that follow. I’m really going  [ Read More ]

Text Message Everyone

I should start by saying that I do not pay the extra fee for text messages on my phone – so I won’t be using this service – but that doesn’t make it any less cool. I just read about twttr on TechCrunch. Odeo released a new service today called Twttr, which is a sort of “group send” SMS application. Each person controls their own network of friends. When any  [ Read More ]

Keep track of time

SlimTimer is a nifty little tool that I read about on TechCrunch. It provides you with a web based personal timer. This is great for people who work from home or work for time. You can keep track of your time and then run reports for both yourself and anyone else who has shared their timer with you. While it does still depend on the honesty of the employee, it’s  [ Read More ]

My most recent project

I just realized how long it has been since I’ve written anything. I’m trying to get things organized around the house before I start classes. I’m currently reading The Accidental Systems Librarian. In addition, at work I’m working on a huge project to replace the software we’re using for ILL. So as you can see I’ve been a little busy. This project I’m working on is so much bigger than  [ Read More ]

LITA National Forum

Just a reminder that the unofficial wiki is up and running – and waiting for people to start entering information. This will be my first year at LITA and my first time in TN, so I don’t have much to contribute, but I’d really like to see some veterans participating in this collaborative project.

Now Reading

I just finished installing Now Reading – a plugin for WordPress. I’m having some pretty major issues with it so I might have to uninstall it, but I really don’t want to. I get MySQL errors when I add and edit books. You’ll also find that links to certain books don’t work. Lastly, the links to Amazon aren’t using my associates tag quite right. Feel free to email me if  [ Read More ]

Distance Learning

As you know I will start my Masters program with Drexel Online in just 2 months! I was interested in what this online learning experience was going to be like so I’m reading Teach Beyond Your Reach by Robin Neidorf. Since the book is geared toward teachers (not students) there are a few sections I’ve found myself skimming over (like the creating content chapters), but for the most part this  [ Read More ]

Second Life Library Feature

That’s right the Second Life Library crew has written a feature article for Serious Game Source. If you still haven’t read about this project, here’s a good overview of what’s being done. I haven’t been as active lately as I should be, but the more people that are involved the better!

Map out your job

Jessamyn has posted a great image over at librarian.net. The image shows a chart that explains a library director’s job. I think all employees should have to create a chart like this. I think that if we all had one of these we could show them to our board members when we’re up for review. This way they’d see that the web manager doesn’t just make sure that the web  [ Read More ]
