      • Meebo
      • Library à la Carte
    • 3. del.icio.us
      • A social bookmarking website
      • A collection of favorites
        • Keep links and access them from anywhere
        • Share your bookmarks publicly
        • Discover new things
      • del.icio.us/bridgeslibrary (my favorite business bookmarks)
    • 4.  
    • 5. del.icio.us and Librarians
      • Share your del.icio.us URL at the bottom of your email signature
      • Add a network badge, link roll, or tag roll to your web page
      • Share your del.icio.us RSS Feed
      • “ Fan” other librarian del.icio.us accounts and share links
    • 6. Meebo
      • Instant message chat box
      • Embedded in all OSU library Web pages (not the catalog)
      • Subject specialist chat boxes embedded in appropriate Web pages
    • 7. Timeline for Chat at OSU
      • January 2007 : Chatango IM box added to library home page.
      • April 2007 : Chatango presence expanded to most of the library web pages; usage shoots up from 199 in March to 394 in April. Anecdotal reports of out-of-state in addition to out-of-country users start coming from librarians staffing the queue.
      • August 2007 : Meebo widget replaces Chatango widget on library pages.
      • around October 2007 : Librarians start creating chat widgets and add them to their own web pages (ICAPs, SRGs, professional pages)
      • March 2008 : Meebo widget changed on library page to pop out—no more lost chats due to patron navigating away from page. Presented with a re-direct option (email or L-Net) when IM service not staffed.
      Info provided by Valery King, OSU Librarian
    • 8. 4-Year Chat Trends for OSU Info provided by Valery King, OSU Librarian
    • 9. Library à la Carte Library Information Made to Order
      • Needs assessment: undergraduates are assignment driven.
      • Hired a programmer to develop Library à la Carte .
      • Interactive Course Assignment Pages (ICAPs) highlight relevant library resources for a particular class or research assignment.
    • 10. Library à la Carte ICAPS
      • ICAPs are dynamic web pages that integrate Web 2.0 features , chat and RSS feeds, etc. with traditional library content , such as catalogs and article databases. Using these pages, students quickly locate research tools and information.

    • 12. Library à la Carte Features
      • Easy to learn interface with inline help and online documentation
      • Add and reuse modules for text, images, RSS, widgets, videos, chats, and custom search boxes
      • Drag and Drop interface to arrange content
    • 13. What the Students Say
      • “ Many thanks for putting together that web site for our training and class. I have not only gone back to use it, I showed it to a professor and encouraged him to think of offering something like that to their students.”
      • “ I just wanted to say "Thank You" for this page for BA 352 . It's very useful and I just ordered a book through summit. :)”
    • 14. Library à la Carte for Your Classes

    • 27. Teaching with Cases
      • A natural fit for the business school
      • But Harvard-style cases are a bad fit for us
        • Self-contained
        • Application, not research
      • Invert the model to fit library instruction
        • Research sets the stage for application
        • Information literacy is introduced in context
