A new beginning

It has been a long time since I have posted on my blog. I need to take my web 2.0 class all over. This time, I will concentrate on useful (to me) apps. I want to learn to create QR codes, so I can add them to all the new library books I purchase. I'm hoping to get kids excited about them. Right now, they just ask me what the symbol is.
I have been concentrating on my displays in the library for the past couple of years, so now it is time to ramp it up. Wish I had time to add all my books from Shelfari to Jacketflap so both would be updated. Hm, maybe...
I use so many different ereaders, sometimes I forget what book is where. NetGalley can go to Bluefire or Kindle. Simon and Schuster goes to Adobe Digital Editions. Guess they could go to Bluefire if I knew how to crete them in PDF. Oh well, sometimes I read on the computer, sometimes on the iPad, sometimes on the Kindle and sometimes on my iPhone.

ALA Volunteers are AWESOME!!

ALA came to one of our district's middle schools today to help weed. This library had not been weeded in over 25 years. These 6 dynamic people arrived ready to work and attacked the shelves. It was incredible to watch these professionals at work. They came from all different parts of the U.S. to help us. We weeded over 10,000 books in 6 hours. A couple finished their section early, cleaned the shelves and staged some books on the shelves. This will lessen the "blow"the principal will feel when he sees all the books being deleted. Administrators never seem to understand the weed concept. This principal will walk into a beautiful library on Monday morning. How can we ever thank these volunteers? When they left, we thanked them over and over. They waved and said they were more than happy to do it.They even claimed to have enjoyed it. I am still in in awe of these wonderful people in our profession.
Tomorrow, off to ALA. I hope I run in to my new "friends".

Feeder and alerts

Today, I have set up a new bloglines and google reader. I also set up Google alerts. I am waiting to see the results. School Library Learning Web 2.0 is my main reason for doing this.
