  • We have integrated blogs into the overall work of the library to point where we may have too many blogs integrated into library homepage
  • - When click on the blog roll, taken to a page with all of our blogs that show a brief description and part of the first post. If click on Read on >
  • It takes you to the blog’s page. for this blog I use Blogger because at that time it was the only blog platform that easily would integrate slidedecks (Wordpress was clunkier) have been some great improvements in blogger since became a google product blog is for all kinds of announcements: Census releases, changes in our major numeric data sources, place to put presentation slides after a class Also do ICPSR announcements. To the right you see an example. I do use their text from their announcements because I want to preserve the original information.
  • You can see that the ICPSR announcements are pretty popular. I do try to use catchy titles to entice people. ICPSR has new goodies for you post = 200 hitsThe post was new data sources; nothing spectacular; just posted as a test to see if the blog was still on the homepage blog roll
  • Also send blog out through Twitter feed I use personal; Amy West uses a professional feed in which she sends out similar types of info Also is connected to facebook  useful because so many library colleagues (who don’t have data libs or icpsr) are my friends; able to get the word out to the lib comm and not just the G Twitterfeed is the connector
  • Reference interns work about 75 hours/week at our desk. We try to keep them current on a variety of sources as part of their internship numeric resources is one class in the first semester
  • Sesssion starts out with basic statistical literacy introduction Then talk about resources incl ICPSR give them exercise they must do using these sources
