  • Introduce myselfFormat if the presentationPlug for uncon following immediately afterward
  • Going to go over some basic tech skills you need to know and a few tips I’ve picked up along the way from others
  • Not just for job search, for everything. Lofe revolves are rss at work, at school, etc etcGood thing to keep in mind for all of these technologies… the more you are comfortable with them at home, the more you will use them at work
  • Share with your friends, get recommendations, easy to use if you’re in google suites. cloud
  • Another format for google reader… I like having this, but I really look to the reader for the heavy lifting
  • Bloglines is also very good, but I like google suite, easy to use, less log ins the better
  • I went to a conference at the beginning of last year and twitter was not popular at all. So I took a break and now I’m in love.
  • You can add your 2 cents, reply to other librarians, have a conversation, become friends with others.
  • $46 FOR ALA IF YOU MAKE LESS THAN $25KDON’T BE SHYCCLI, SCIL, diversity in southern California academic libraries, create your own group!
  • I’m obsessed with these cards. Can be a great conversation starter. My friend has her guinea pigs on there.
  • I likefacebook, don’t get me wrong. But it’s my last personal refuge. I have highly customizable privacy settings. I prefer other forms of social networking… but this speaks to the highly individualized nature of all of these tools. Have to draw your own boundaries, and yes, I do suggest setting up boundaries.
  • Really useful. You need to keep track of where you’re applying. Deadlines are important to keep in mind. I like to use Google documents to take the document where ever I go.
  • Your attitude makes a big difference. Be mindful of who you’re talking to… this is a super small profession remember that.
  • I like to help. I have made many jing tutorials to assist my students and friends in the use of these technologies.
