Web 2.0 Training Day at the Library

Posted by sarahw9 on 16 July, 2008

David Wilson Library

Still fresh from the web 2.0 training day  last Thursday a group of web 2.0 enthusiast subject librarians have decided to cultivate an active blog.  Yes we want people to take part.  UoL Library Blog is intended initially for library staff at the University of Leicester to share news and ideas, but who knows, we may expand.

Back to the web 2 training day, there was lots of positive feedback which is always nice,  and a few interesting points:

  • Facebook – should we go beyond the ‘corporate’ page approach?  Probably not, but how do our personal identities / work identities blend together?
  • RSS feed readers: should we be writing this into our training (esp Outlook in Windows 07). I expect you are going to tell me you already do / have.
  • Twitter – I am trying to sort out getting Thwirl installed (we need administrator access) – if there are no ‘technical’ hitches.

There will be a follow up session in the Autumn.  Any suggestions for things we could include are more than welcome.
