Week 12: Library 2.0 and Feedback

23 June 2008

Hi everyone,

We’ve finally reached Week 12, the last “official” week of the program.

After spending some time with Google, we’re moving well and truly back into the Library world by looking at the phenomena of Library 2.0, for Thing 22.

Thing 23, our last Thing, is to provide some feedback on the program. There are a few suggested topics for you to consider when writing your blog post, but we’ll be pleased to get feedback on any aspect of the program.

As always, feel free to get in touch if you’ve questions or comments regarding any of the 23 Things. I know everyone’s at a different stage of the program and I’m happy to help no matter which Thing you’re up to.

Week 11: iGoogle

16 June 2008

Hi all,

This week we’re looking at Google’s personalized homepage service, iGoogle. Bring your favourite information together in the one location – things like news, weather, RSS feeds, and more. Use the “Add stuff” link to add new gadgets to your page – there are lots to choose from.

Don’t forget to blog about your experience using iGoogle – there are a few questions as prompts in the Thing itself.

Week 10: Google Maps, Docs, and Book Search

10 June 2008

Hi all,

This week’s Things form part one of a two-part look at some of the other online services that Google offers:

Maps is the online version of Google Earth – you can link to a location from your blog (or an email!), do location searches and find directions. Docs is an online office application, offering word processing, spreadsheets, and presentations that can be accessed anywhere and edited by multiple users at the same time. Book Search is exactly what it sounds like – Google’s version of a library catalogue! And they aim to have one big library too.
