Just as recently as three months ago I was writing about my non-techie foray into understanding RSS and some Firefox add-ons recommended within my virtual circle of blogging friends. Since two months ago, my job now is fully involved with working the Information Desk and trying to take a crash course in the world of 2.0. Each day I learn a little more and while I have yet to start leaving comments, I’m finding it immensely helpful to learn from reading other librarian blogs such as Free Range Librarian, The Shifted Librarian and The Other Librarian.
My current favorites on my newbie 2.0 toes in the water include:
- David Lee King’s Basic Competencies of a 2.0 Librarian, Take 2
- Infodoodad’s Top *13* Web 2.0 Tools for Librarians
I must be at least skimming the surface with my Flickr badge, Twitter, MyBlogLog, and Library Thing on my brand new WordPress blog. I truly enjoy dabbling in these kinds of content and social networking. As the town I work in struggles to balance their budget and the library is eye-to-eye with the proverbial chopping block, my personal goal is to seize the 2.0 day and strive to inject a modern relevance of content in this changing world for libraries.
