The Library 2.0 Network

I was directed via one of my listservs to a new social network: Library 2.0 as created by Bill Drew. It looks a bit like a social network (of the myspace variety), a bit of one-stop-shopping for ALA blog updates, a few podcasts, and the latest librarian video, and a jolly good time to be had by all. I can upload videos (or link to my favorite YouTube’s), add library photos, etc etc.

I particularly liked A Librarian’s 2.0 Manifesto Video

I’m in the midst of a database crunch so don’t look for a lot of personalization on my page just yet. Perhaps once I get through the 5000+ records that were “discovered” in New York that have to be entered…

Sleep is optional.

JFK Video available

George Jefferies and Wayne Graham recently a forty second clip of the JFK motorcade just seconds before the assassination. It’s a bright sunny day in said silent clip and I liked seeing Jackie smiling and waving at the crowd. You don’t get a really good view of John but still–can you imagine finding that in the family films? Costume geek that I am, I also enjoyed the 1960s clothing and hair!

Pretty cool!

Fun Links for Thursday

You’ve almost made it through the week!! 🙂 Can you believe it’s already nearing the end of February? I’ll be driving all day Thursday, heading from an I state, through an I state, to an I state.

Two links for your enjoyment:

Literature Quizzes (courtesy of Kimbooktu) –much fun!

An old Knitting Commercial (courtesy of “Go Knit in Your Hat”) –reminds me of the current infomercial for the “hand held” sewing machine.

In case you didn’t know..I’m a rabid knitter 🙂
