Let’s Get Social: Social Bookmarking Presentation for DLS

I recently participated in the Let’s Get Social: Social Bookmarking Presentation for the DuPage Library System.  The slides were posted the other day, but the full audio stream is now available.  In this presentation, we discussed the use of social bookmarking, Diigo, Evernote, and Delicious.  It’s not the best presentation I have ever done, but enjoy.

Brand Yourself With 8bitlibrary!

I am reposting a great post from The Young Librarian Series.  It is about the ALA EL project, Brand Yourself a Librarian from the 8bitlibrarian.

I hope that my friends will get inked with me at ALA Annual this year in DC.

Tagging controversy

In today’s Daily Herald (FRONT PAGE) the headline reads Tag Coulter Book as You Wish?  A library patron complained that Ann Coulter books in the catalog were tagged “hate speech”. 

I found this very interesting.  The library has defended the rights of patrons to tag books the way they want.  Moreover, the ALA has no policy in terms of tagging. 

I think this article is interesting for many reasons.  First, censorship of tagging.  Secondly, policy implications.  Third, how cool is it that libraries are making the front cover of major papers!
