More CPL Website Goodness…

04-Mar-08

I’m such a library geek. I’ve been exploring the new CPL site and I’ve found more goodness locked away. While browsing the catalog I’ve found that some books have: reviews, summaries, excerpts and character information included in the catalog record (as well as being able to see the MARC record). All of this content seems […]

I focused on three aspects of the digital native: learning, communication/socializing, and producing/consuming media. From the learning perspective I […]

Del.icio.us Tagging Post

18-Dec-07

I like Del.icio.us. I probably don’t use it the way it’s supposed to be used. I tend to use it like a web scrapbook. I put things there that I want to remember for later or things that I don’t have time to read but plan to get back to. It works pretty well for […]

Wiki Presentation.

12-Dec-07

All in all I would have to say that I really enjoyed putting together the presentation on Wikis for LIS 768. I had good technological experiences with my group members and I felt it was some of the most successful online collaboration I had been involved with yet. We had 2 IM meetings in which […]
