It's Over!

(Week 9, Thing 23)

I have now reached the end of 23 Things. I have enjoyed most of the program, and none of it seemed like a waste of time. It was well designed, easy to follow, and I will find it useful in my career.

The Flickr and image editing parts of the program were recently directly relevant to my work. I noticed that many of our teens and tweens have cell phone camera pictures of themselves on their social networking pages. My library has a digital camera that can take higher-quality pictures, so I allowed some of them to borrow it to improve their pages. I was able to show them the Flickr Toys page to modify the images and make them more interesting. This helped me form a better connection with these younger patrons, and I belive that this simple activity will improve my working environment.

I already knew about certain sites and applications explained in the program, but I am still glad that they were a part of this. For example, I already knew about Overdrive and podcasts, but these are resources that all librarians should be able to use. I am glad that this program will let everyone learn about these resources on library time.

I would definitely participate in another, similar learning program if one is offered in the future.

Way to go! As far as I've seen, you're the first to complete the task!

I don't know about you, but I'll kind of miss doing it. Did you hear/see that there is now a Library 2.1 with more things? I saw it on a site somewhere....

Your 23 things are fantastic. I appreciate you that you have successfully done most of the programs and did not mid for the time. I want to add you in my blog. Digital camera is often more clear than Mobile. The pixel range is also high in Digital Camera. SO you use digital Camera instead of Mobile camera.
