Top Ten Reasons for Libraries
Slideshare is a wonderful example of Web 2.0 in action and here is a lovely presentation by Chuck Hamaker of UNC Charlotte. Just 10 slides but such powerful images - wow!
Why do a blog? Many of us don't like the formality of article writing, so a blog can set us free. But why should anyone read it? We're always going on about information overload. I guess it's about making connections, sharing knowledge ( sounds like the jargon is creeping in...I'll be "adding value" soon...).
We can gain so much from sharing and that's what I'll aim to do : point to stuff that has come along which you may find interesting.
As a retired librarian I no longer have to blog about Information Literacy to students and librarians but can have fun with other topics.Non-BREXIT-Mann is going to be very general but my other new blog is to share my enthusiasm for Baroque churches!
