Daily Thoughts 4/15/2011
I am thinking about different website management tools from Google, Google Webmaster Tools, Google Site Search Engine, and Google Sitemapper. I think these could improve the quality of the library website along with some remapping of the website.
Today, I checked the Twitter account, checked the displays, and checked the surveys. Things are in order. I am going to be on vacation next week, so I will probably write a number of book reviews.
I am attending the May 13, 2011 Westchester Library Assocation conference. Seth Godin is the keynote speaker. It is something which I am definitely interested in hearing. http://www.westchesterlibraryassociation.org/brochure.pdf The title for the conference is Fearless Librarians: Inventing the Future.
On the way home, I read a little bit more of Getting More. The author is writing about how to negotiate salaries, promotions, and getting hired. He tells you that a lot of it is about building relationships and finding out about who works in a company. He also tells you that it is about finding out what people want before you go into an interview with specific goals.
The Merger of Telecoms and Utilities: Is It the Future?
I thought this was interesting because it is a way to deal with smart grid technologies and controlling electricity and phone services. If we had a smart utility company, it would probably be better for a library because we could negotiate a package covering all the different serviees, electricity, wireless internet, fiber optic internet, and telephones.
