Web 2.0 technologies, like del.iciou.us, Podcasting, Netvibes, Second Life, LibraryThing, Screencasting have almost unlimited possibilities. But how can you use these in library instructions?
In this paper I will focus on personal start page tools like Netvibes (look-alikes are iGoogle, Pageflakes, MyYahoo). With this tool you can make your own free personal start page. It allows you to put all your web resources into one page, including blogs, news, email, podcasts, pictures, videocasts, rss-feeds. You can also share the content of a Netvibes-page with others. This makes it possible to develope pages for specific departments but also to use it in instructions. In the presentation I will demonstrate
Netvibes: What is it, how do libraries use Netvibes, do they use it at all? How can we use Netvibes in our library classes?
