The LCC Library (tres cool) Video

It will be fun & interesting to see how often our very cool & new (and ready for prime time) video is viewed on YouTube and what comments are left.

In the meantime, I uploaded/posted it to my blog as well. I hope to use it in classes this year and when I collaborate with nursing, massage and/or dental hygiene faculty.

Kudos to all who were involved in the producing of that video.

ALA Read Mini Poster

Have you ever looked at the ALA Read posters with the celebrity endorsements and wished you could be the star? Well now you can! Just use this little gizmo to create your own READ mini poster. So pick up your favorite book, or one that just happens to be nearby and snap a quick photo. You too can bask in the limelight!

Information Literacy Meets Library 2.0

If you haven't used this blog, Information Literacy Meets Library 2.0, see what you think of it.
Some really good posts in this blog include:
  • info about a very interesting international Information Literacy logo contest; I like the winning logo, do you?
  • TeacherTubes- insightful professional videos that promote IL
  • "100 Unbelievably Useful Reference Sites You've Never Heard Of"
  • "Ten Social Networking Tips for Librarians"
  • a post entitled, "Evaluation, Evaluation, Evaluation" mentions a recently published article co-authored by Michael Lorenzen (CMU librarian)- evaluation being the key part of IL

And get this, the posts have an audiocast button to click on.

See what you think.
