Basically: there are plenty of tools out there for lots of aspects of life. Let's make sure we propose the proper tool (or our take on a good tool) for the right job. From managing our tasks and priorities to determining how best to engage our communities, let's all start looking around for the right tools.
Of course if that's not enough, you probably should go check out the About Five Weeks to a Social Library project that finished up last month."
Tulsa City-County Library Literacy Coordinator Jennifer Greb (a.k.a. Jenn2.0, webmistress of the Ambient Librarian wiki on Library2.0 topics) has been honored by Oklahoma Magazine as one of their "40 Under 40". This is a list of 40 young movers and shakers around the state. Nice to see libraries getting that kind of forward-looking reputation!
