Posts I Have Saved part 1

My list of posts I have saved to read later or the magic posts that made me hit the ‘Keep New’ button…

Phil Bradley’s post on 11 Things to Do in Tescos One of those posts that you just ‘have’ to forward to your friends on a Friday afternoon :o)

Phil Bradley’s Surrealism Stalks the Library This should be required reading for senior management when they try to sell RFID as the ultimate way to “free up” library staff!

Random and cold medicine-induced thoughts on screencasting From Information Wants to Be Free – unfortunately I am one of those mentioned folk who hadn’t heard of screencasting but having followed some of the links I’m really interested in seeing whether we could use this for staff training.

Phil Bradley’s post on Internet Detective” Promise this is my last Phil Bradley link for today! Links through to the Internet Detective site which is not just a great example of teaching HE students how to use the web for research but also an interesting reminder of just how confusing the web can be to anyone trying to sort fact from fiction!

Library Delivery 2.0: Delivering Library Materials in the Age of NetFlix A TechEssence.Info post on library delivery in the web 2.0 era. Particularly interesting for me as I work in interlibrary loans and am looking for ideas about end user delivery. Always good to think about what the Amazons of the world have to teach us in libraries.

Meme attack! Sorted science fiction Velcro City Tourist Board is one of my favourite blogs at the moment, although some of the Sci-Fi is beyond me it did prompt me to read and thoroughly enjoy Ursula LeGuin’s Dispossessed recently. Now this post makes me want to go and make strange towers from the books at work tomorrow!

Book Review: ‘The Dispossessed’ by Ursula le Guin And here’s the book review by Velcro City Tourist Board.

Ok this is taking some time so part 2 may have to follow tomorrow (I keep getting distracted by clicking on links!) – to be continued…
