Thing 23 One Last Thing

I am happy that I decided to stick with 23 Things. I often had trouble downloading items. I had a 20's something libarian help and she couldn't figure out why it didn't work. I feel that I learned something from each of the things.
I completed the survey and emailed metronet that I had finished.
I hope to go back to my blog and spruce it up!
Thanks to everyone who put this together.

Thing 22 Staying Current

I hope to spend 15 minutes a day doing 1 of the 23 Things. I breezed over some things, but I think I learned something new when I was doing each thing.
I signed up at Web Junction and will get their monthly updates.
I will check Bloglines daily. I hope to go back and more fully do some things.

Thing 21 Social Networking

I joined Ning and left comments for another member.
I looked over social networks and joining another network seems overwhelming for me right now.

Visit 23 Things on a Stick

Thing 20 Libraries and Social Networks

I watched the Video-so funny!
I watched the tutorial. Common Craft does a good job. Their one on Wiki was also good.
I registered on Facebook, set up my profile, joined 2 groups-Libraries Using Facebook and 23 things on a stick. I wrote on the first's wall.
I browsed MySpace and looked at HCL Myspace Page. I see they have links to their programs and many, many friends.

On to Thing 21!

Thing 19 Podcasts

I listened to several. One source took too long to load.
Mankato one was all graphics-pretty cool.
I linked MPR's classical music podcast to my blog reader account.

Thing 18 Youtube

I watched March of the Librarians. Reminded me of PLA last week. I didn't spot the MN librarian.

Minnesota Library 2.0 Thing 16 and 17

Thing 16 Calendar
I looked at the calendars and wished I had these back when I was in school.

Thing 17 ELM
We have the 5 Ebsco databases on our computers for the patrons.
I will get one of them on my RSS feed after I finish 23 Things.
