So sorry for the late arrival! Some thoughts...

Lots of great launch points floating around here...Perhaps it's time to create a focus or a rough "outline"? Like Jessica, I'm having a hard time envisioning how this presentation is going to come together.

I think it's important to discuss both blogs and twitters(?) as examples of social networking resources. Some of the blogs listed in chapter 18 of our MLIS text might be worth discussion. I keep reading more and more that blogs are on the decline now that twitter has taken over. (Much like the myspace to facebook trend.) It might be a good idea to discuss long-term viability of these platforms as well as the "history" of blogging/microblogging.

Should we break up the topic into youth services vs academic vs adult services, etc?

I don't think we necessarily need to provide a link to our own blog if we have other "interactive" portions. Surveys, etc...

I like the idea of doing one long powerpoint, but don't know how to accomplish it logistically. I unfortunately use an older version of MS PowerPoint, so I can't use a lot of the great templates that are available.

Is there any interest in doing a web tour as part of our presentation? Actually "walking through" some of the sites with our classmates?


  1. Regarding web tour: of course! That's why this group blog was set up in the first place - to be shown to the class as an example of groupwork via blogging.

  2. Oh I see. Will we do a web tour of other blogs and/or twitter accounts that are good resources for librarians and patrons?

  3. I don't know if twitter will ever completely overtake the blog market -- after all, there's only so much you can say in 140 characters!

    As for the powerpoint, I'd be happy to meld everyone's presentations together into one long powerpoint (assuming that's better than loading them all up into Elluminate beforehand).
