Weblogs  for Libraries

Weblogs or "blogs" are online journals of single or shared authorship that can range in quality and subject matter from the ridiculous to extremely useful to both librarians and library clientele.  This introductory class will focus on the best available weblogs and explore how to find weblogs that focus on librarians' professional interests and professional development.  We will also look for best examples of how librarians are using weblogs.

Striking Gold Every Time

September 27:  1:30 pm - 4:30 pm

OCLC CAPCON, Washington DC

 

Learn to locate web directories that will result in just the right web page needed.

 

What is the best web site for education issues? What other resources are there besides The Librarian's Index and Kidsclick?  Finding a web page on a topic is easy, but finding an excellent web page on the same topic can be challenging. That task can be made easier if you are familiar with selective web directories.
