Daily Thoughts 8/1/2011
Today has been a steady day. I updated the Twitter account, checked the displays, and checked the donations. There were a bunch of urban fiction books that were donated as well as some classics. I also checked the Ereference. We get lots of Local History questions in Ereference.
I am looking at doing some social media things for the library which should be interesting. I started working on a a Facebook page for the library today. It is very different doing an institutional facebook page compared to do a personal Facebook page. It also feels different between doing a personal Twitter account and an institutional Twitter account.
I stayed late tonight to discuss technology in the library. We talked about the computer lab, laptops, internet connections, the website, and a variety of different subjects. A lot of patrons would like more wireless access and more laptops. We also discussed possibly purchasing some magazine subscriptions for the Sony Ereaders which seems like an interesting idea.
