Summary of the 23 Things

To stay current in the library profession this exercise was terrific. I'm not a fan of blogging but as a librarian it is important for me to know what's going on. I love YouTube!! Zoho is amazing, and the image generators I tried were lots of fun. It was great that we had a 3 month period to complete the program. With so many staff members in HCPL doing it we had the ability to ask so many people for assistance. The Tech Fair was a great way to kick it off.

Every year or so we should do this type of thing. Maybe it would only 10 things or less. I would do it even if we were not receiving such a great gift- or perhaps all those who finish, if we do this again, can have their name put in for a drawing for Library Loot.

I will definitely be looking at the other things of the original 43.


It's all about the access. Book format will always be with us but more and more people are turning to alternative formats. Public libraries need to have access to it all.

For those addicted to radio shows this is heaven. I'm not one of them but I would listen to a favorite author discuss his or her new book. This could be very useful in education. Something different then internet or print format.

I've been watching videos on YouTide for some time. If you are ever in a bad mood just find a video of kittens playing and you will feel better.

Onine Productivity Tools

Zoho is amazing. There are so many benefits. First how many times have a witnessed a patron who cannot access anything on their floppy because it was damaged. Or the software they used is not compatible with what we have.
One of the greatest benefits is the ability to work on group projects and the ease of accessibility to saved work.
This is really the way to go in the future. There are some ways to improve Zoho. It could be more intuitive.
