I created my own tatoo, my own piece of Delfware and played with a few others. You can do so much with them. Again, I think some people have too much time on their hands to be creating this stuff. Although you could use some of them to create catchy images and video clips to attract the teenagers interest in the library, or just a quirky way of advertising an upcoming event. </li></ul><ul><li>Posted by Spaghetti at 5:17 PM 0 comments   </li></ul><ul><li>Sunday, October 14, 2007 </li></ul><ul><li>#5 Flickr </li></ul><ul><li> </li></ul><ul><li>Now I'm really flying. I saved this image to Flickr and now I've added it to my blog. Sorry for stating the obvious. </li></ul><ul><li>Flickr is a great way to share your photos with family and friends. </li></ul><ul><li>With families scattered these days, it is a great way to share the photos without clogging up email accounts. </li></ul><ul><li>I've added captions to photos and explored the various 3rd party software available. Where do people get the time to create the 3rd party software. What fantastic fun you can have with your photos. </li></ul>
  10. 10. <ul><li>Penguins are taking over Library's all over the world are getting worried that penguins are taking over the running of libraries, driving cars and who knows what else. </li></ul><ul><li>Taking on board the Antarctica display, one over friendly penguin argued with the driver that she wanted to drive the car. In the end the librarian won out, but Mrs Penguin insisted on sitting in the front seat. Police were quite happy as she did condescend to wear her seat belt. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Posted by Gypsy at 6:24 pm, 1 comment </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Gardener said... </li></ul><ul><ul><li>You can't trust those penguins - give them an inch and they will take a mile! </li></ul></ul>

I am shocked at the way you humans treat us furry, cute, cuddly irresistible bears how you don't think it might be a bit disturbing to see one of us bears with his head stuck in a USB port. </li></ul><ul><li> </li></ul><ul><li>Posted by Teddy at 4:20 AM 2 comments </li></ul>
  12. 12. <ul><li>Friday, October 26, 2007 </li></ul><ul><li>#5 Flickr </li></ul><ul><li>I could spend ages looking </li></ul><ul><li>at different people's photos on </li></ul><ul><li>flickr, some images are really </li></ul><ul><li>well composed/thought out – </li></ul><ul><li>it does give you ideas. What </li></ul><ul><li>amazed me was the sheer </li></ul><ul><li>number of photos assembled! </li></ul><ul><li>I chose to construct a photo- </li></ul><ul><li>graphic mosaic of flickr images </li></ul><ul><li>http:// / the </li></ul><ul><li>only thing I'd do differently next </li></ul><ul><li>time would by to de-select the </li></ul><ul><li>images I didn't want from the </li></ul><ul><li>random list rather than select </li></ul><ul><li>the 200 plus individually. </li></ul><ul><li>Posted by Bibliophile at </li></ul><ul><li>8:38 PM 0 comments </li></ul>
  13. 13. LibraryThing <ul><li>Wednesday, November 7, 2007 </li></ul><ul><li>Librarything </li></ul><ul><li>Very interesting site, very easy to use. I have included some of the more recent books I have read. I will be loggining on in the near future and reading more reviews. this would be useful for library useres to access at home if possible and look for new books, if they are stuck in a rut with what they are reading. Just about to start with Rollyo, trying to get my head around it now. Cya </li></ul><ul><li>Posted by libraryspice at 5:29 PM 0 comments     </li></ul>
  14. 14. RSS feeds <ul><li>Sunday, October 28, 2007 </li></ul><ul><li>#8 RSS </li></ul><ul><li>I guess all the effort is in the </li></ul><ul><li>setting up of RSS feeds, having </li></ul><ul><li>done that it saves the trouble of </li></ul><ul><li>individually checking sites to </li></ul><ul><li>see if there have been any develop- </li></ul><ul><li>ments especially useful for locations </li></ul><ul><li>which appear to have spurts of activity. </li></ul><ul><li>Having activated a Bloglines account, I went trawling for sites with </li></ul><ul><li>feeds. After visiting some sites which I felt would/should have this </li></ul><ul><li>facility, but didn't, I added the ABC's TV guide, Lonely Planet </li></ul><ul><li>Travel Blog (which had a bit on the Californian fires - so I saw the </li></ul><ul><li>benefit of RSS imediately). </li></ul><ul><li>Posted by Bibliophile at 11:14 PM 0 comments </li></ul>
  15. 15. Rollyo <ul><li>Tuesday, October 23, 2007 </li></ul><ul><li>#12 Rollyo </li></ul><ul><li>Rollyo is very easy to get started with. I was registered and had a couple of searchrolls created in a matter of minutes. I think Rollyo could be really good for setting up limited searches for kids doing school projects - put together a range of good sites on the topic of choice, add the link to your web page and the kids are still doing their research, but you know that the sites they are going to will give them appropriate information. The Searchrolls I created are Aussie Craft Suppliers and Fantasy & Sci-Fi Books . </li></ul><ul><li>Posted by Gardener at 12:40 PM 1 comments   </li></ul><ul><li>Labels: Library 2.0 , Rollyo , Searchrolls </li></ul><ul><li>Victorian Public Libraries Learning 2.0 Project said... </li></ul><ul><ul><li>I like the idea of using rollyo for kids projects. keep up the good work Lynette </li></ul></ul>
