CT Blogs!

Weblogs and RSS:
Sharing Information with Your Patrons

Connecticut Library Association Annual Conference

New Haven, CT
April 13, 2005

Weblogs or "blogs" have caught on in the library world as a means to share and exchange ideas and information in a free and open manner. Susan Herzog, Information Literacy Librarian, ECSU, will discuss what blogs are and how librarians are using them with colleagues and user communities. Arta Dobbs, Collection Management Librarian, UConn Health Center, will speak on using blogs as a work tool, and the decision-making process for the selection of free off-site-hosted blogs or in-house-hosted blogs and purchasing blog software. Nick Tomaiuolo, Bibliographic Instruction Librarian, CCSU, will describe what RSS feeds are and how to use them within your library setting.

Susan's Presentation: Please use the control panel at the bottom of each slide to view the slide show. Web links are now in Black Font.

I'm Susan Herzog, Information Literacy Librarian @ Eastern Connecticut State University. This blog is part of my blogging presentations.
