Social Cataloging: Goodreads & Library Thing

As someone who has around 300 books in their personal collection, I find sites such as Goodreads and Library Thing to be very useful to say the least. I have been using Goodreads for around a year and a half now, and although I had a Library Thing account for just as long I am…

The Magical World of Google

As many of you know, I am a huge Google fangirl (Yes I realize that I have a WordPress blog instead of blogger. That is because I prefer WordPress and I don’t like to choose something based on the name alone…). With that being said, Google has some pretty awesome things going on. A fellow…

Some Helpful Readings on Social Media

My course on Social Media is turning out to be way more informative than I originally thought it would be (not to mention I am actually learning about Research Methods in this course more so than other courses I have taken…including a separate course on Research Methods.

The Travelin’ Librarian

I have written very briefly about this particular blog about a year ago. I also follow the author on Google+! I am talking about The Travelin’ Librarian, Michael Sauers. His current title is Technology Innovation Librarian for the Nebraska Library Commission in Lincoln Nebraska. How awesome is that title? I’m a bit jealous. Michael’s blog is…

My Feelings on Social Media

So as a “twenty something” social media  is rather central to my life, not only personally but academically and professionally as well. Social Media (SM) is many things. It is a way to network for jobs, stay in contact with friends and family, find new friends who have interests in niche topics, a way to…

Week 1, Social Media for Information Professionals

Is this your first time you created a blog? This is not my first time creating a blog. I had to create a co-op blog for my final semester in my Undergrad program at UCF instead of using the webcourse system so that is how I learned about blogging. I initially used Blogger because it…
