    • TypePad ( http://typepad.com )
      • Not free, but a viable blogging option if you’re interesting in something hosted, but not as limited as WordPress and Blogger
    • Twiki ( http://twiki.org/ )
      • A bit easier than MediaWiki to use if you want to host your own wiki
    • Zoho ( http://zoho.com/ )
      • Offers the same functions as Google Docs, with a bunch of added tools that may be of interest to you and your staff

    • Flickr ( http://flickr.com )
      • Share your library’s photos online – can be made private so only library staff sees – or public for the world
    • Facebook ( http://facebook.com )
      • Libraries can now have their own profile on Facebook – allowing you to reach your users on a new level – but also giving library staff members a sense of community and fun
    • LinkedIn ( http://linkedin.com )
      • Professional networking tool that allows you to find connections and recommend colleagues for their work
