More on Social Libraries

Today appears to be Social Libraries Friday here at Library Monk. It may signal the beginning of a trend, you’ll just have to wait until next Friday to find out. 🙂

First we have 23 Things from the Public Library of Charlotte & Mecklenburg County, which is described as:

23 Things (or small exercises) that you can do on the web to explore and expand your knowledge of the Internet and Web 2.0.

Most of these I’ve already done or know about, but it’s a nice intro to things 2.0.

Then there is Five Weeks to a Social Library which is a course I wish I had known about while it was going on. But the content is still there, looks like there’s lots of good info to peruse.

We’ve been blogging at UTK Libraries for a while now. Recently (along with the rest of UTK) we’ve been experimenting with podcasting , although it’s called Volcasting here, naturally.

There has been some talk of the library doing something with Second Life, but nothing concrete at this point. You might find me on Second Life as Librarymonk Merlin, but I don’t get the time to hang out there much.
