  • Introduction \n\nRole as VSC\nMy focus: Holistic approach to integrating technology w/library service\nLibrary as the last true public space\nImportance of conversation\nWe need to build that same community online, and that requires effort from all departments.\n\nThis is important, because everything is changing.\n

  • Clay Shirky example: \n
  • And just as all of these tools and channels come apart, there are a number of tools for brining them all together. \n\nBrowsers with extensions\nPhones with apps\nComputers software/apps\n\nWhat’s great about all this is that you can assemble all of these parts to create an experience customized to your needs. You’ve just got to know what’s out there. \n\nWe’re going to provide you with a sampling of some of our favorite online tools for becoming fitter, happier, and more productive. \nAll of these tools are cheap (usually free), easy-to-use, and can help you \n\nAs with any tool, they’re not going to magically make your life better. Like all things, it takes work to get organized and stay that way. \n\nLet’s get started. \n
  • \n
  • This is a great book that highlights the many ways to stay organized in the digital era. \n
  • \n
  • Rip up a folder!\nEmail folders and folders on a computer are an ineffective way to store, locate and find information. For example, in Microsoft Outlook you can only search for an email in one folder. \n
  • \n
  • \n
  • Notice the lack of folders! I use search to locate the emails that I need.\n
  • Scheduling is another difficulty that we face.\n
  • We engage in long email chains to see if friends are available to meet.\n
  • Doug talks about using the share calendar feature in Google to make scheduling easier.\n

  • Cloud storage is one of the greatest tricks in my trade bag. Toby and I worked on this presentation without seeing each other because of the power of Dropbox. Cloud storage allows you to instantly save files on multiple computers and a remote server without any work. \n
  • There are a number of vendors who offer this service (free of charge for basic needs).\nYou want to look at the terms of service, security, and cost to determine which one is right for you.\n
  • Drop box saved my tail. My car was broken into on my first day at Prairie State College. \nNot only did they get things like my social security card but they also got my laptop, and flash drive. My dissertation (two years worth of work) would be lost forever, but I had dropbox. \n

  • Mint is a way to organize and track your finances!\n
  • Its webbased and easy to use and setup.\nIt categories your expenses automatically!\n
