Week Twelve @ 23 Things n'@

Wow! Hard to believe I won't see any emails in my inbox to try new assignments!

I'm happy I signed up for these classes. It was interesting to learn these assignments. Not every assignment was easy, but I'm glad I kept trying these assignments.

Thanks for the feedback on my blog posts, too.

I think it's nice to learn things via online. But, face to face interaction is better at times, too.

If the opportunity presents itself, I will attempt to tell patrons , the many things I learned by completing these assignments.

Week Eleven @ 23 Things n'@

I decided to subscribe to Seattle Public Library's podcasts. I used Google Reader to listen to it.

I picked Lisa See: "Shanghai Girls".

It was interesting to listen to it.

Amazing how technology has evolved!

Week Ten @ 23 Things n'@

I thought it was neat to move tabs in Firefox. I moved a Pittsburgh Post Gazette tab and a Google tab.

For the add on, I searched for Pittsburgh Steelers. I'm a huge fan. I found a Pittsburgh Steeler display theme.

I did find the way to change the text size in Firefox. In Internet Explorer, I like how it says small, medium, large, etc. In Firefox, it doesn't say small, medium, large, etc. Instead, it says Control +.

I do not see any big "Wow" moments with Firefox. To me, it's like using Internet Explorer. I suppose it's good to get used to different browsers.

Week Nine @ 23 Things n'@

The Flickr photo belongs to Liz Kerrison. The title of the picture is watching Paddington.

The YouTube video of Mazzy Star Be My Angel seems to be from a poster by the name of Fhaar.

I did check out ACLA's Flickr sets. I typed in my library (Monroeville Public Library) to see if photos were posted. Some photos were posted.

I found this assignment to be challenging. I was happy I was able to upload the picture and video. The help feature came in handy.

I chose the Shih Tzu photo because I like Shih Tzus. I don't own one, but I find the dogs cute.
I chose the Mazzy Star Be My Angel video because I like the song. I think it's romantic.

I thought the sites were cool. I have heard of the sites. I've seen YouTube videos of libraries. I think YouTube is another way libraries can promote their services!

Week Eight @ 23 Things n'@

I have a Facebook account. It's neat to see what friends are doing with their lives.

I set up an account on MySpace. I ended up deleting it because I felt it was a place for teenagers to hang out.

Week Six @ 23 Things n'@

I picked 3 databases to view. All were interesting to browse.

1. Ref USA
2. Opposing Viewpoints Resource Center
3. Grove Dictionary of Art

Ref USA seems to be a handy business source.

Opposing Viewpoints Resource Center was informative. I thought it was neat how one can download. It was also interesting to have web sites listed.

Grove Dictionary of Art was resourceful.

Week Five @ 23 Things n'@

I was able to print out the Audio and Video guide at work. It was handy.

Is there a BWI/Follett? I couldn't find it. I looked at Carnegie's web site. I also looked in Access PA. I figured it was available if it made the Audio/Video guide.

I signed up for a NetLibrary account.

I clicked on eBooks. I clicked on The Get Well Soon Book: Good Wishes for Bad Times by Kes Gray and Mary McQuillan. I used the question mark feature to find out how to "read" and "turn" the pages. It was a cute read. I'm not used to reading books via the computer.

I downloaded Bergdorf Blondes by Plum Sykes from the eAudiobooks section. It was interesting to hear a story via the computer. I'm used to holding a book in my hands.

It's good to have these different options to read or listen to books.
