My colleague Erika and I have been out of the office for the past couple days presenting at the Off-Campus Library Services Conference in Salt Lake City, UT. Since I am based in Minneapolis I was looking forward to some warmer weather, but unfortunately it has been overcast and rainy. However the beautiful mountains around Salt Lake City more than make up for the lack of sun (beautiful mountains always tend to impress us from the “flat” Midwest).
Conferences are such a great way to find out about new ideas and share what you are doing with others. One of the presentations I attended today was on Web 2.0.
Not sure what Web 2.0 is and how it can help you in your coursework check out the following links on the Library’s Guides & Tutorials page:
- Cool Tools (brief overviews of Web 2.0 tools such as Assignment Calculators, RSS, Social Bookmarking, Wikis and more!)
- Enhancing Library Research Skills with New Technolgies (this is a presentation you may want to check out at your next Colloquium)
What is your favorite Web 2.0 tool?
