Well, made it to a hut. What a climb. Some good sites along the way. Being able to use so many different media is exciting and patrons will love it. I liked the Gutenberg and Librivox in particular. Google earth is also very useful -have already used it. There is so much out ther and changing as we speak. It's all very much a changing landscape. Very good exercise to do and I have already helped patrons with this new knowledge. So progress!!!
This could be good for bookclubs and communities of interest. Groups with shared interests could hangout together. Maybe reference groups, study groups, childrens interest groups. At the moment a book club seems to catch my imagination. Another way to stay in touch and grow areas of interest. Maybe groups of libraries could get together.
This looks huge. Facebook - So many friends and friends of friends. Who gets to see what about whom? I can see why some people might wonder about 'too much information'. Probably a lot of fun if you like to spend time online, or maybe just want to stay in touch with the world of friends out there. I liked Myspace - could load a photo or two. hmm...
I really like google maps. I had a look at google earth's utube demo and thought that was truly fantastic but it looks as if you have to buy it? Not sure about that. So what's free is really great, what we have to pay for is not. Very helpful with patrons trying to get somewhere, anywhere. I have already used this with patrons so it's library use is proven to me.
