Daily Thoughts 02/29/2012
On the way to work, I read some more of No Shelf Required. There are three major vendors for e-books for libraries; Ingram Digital, Netlibrary, and Overdrive. Baker and Taylor has recently started working on a new system for e-books called Blio. https://www.blio.com/blio/screens/homepage.jsp
This morning, I checked the Facebook and Twitter accounts for the library. We have the Computer Lab for Academic Use between 2:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. today. I also checked some more of the mystery and romance paperbacks from the gifts and suggested a few to be added. I also added a few books on current events to the current events display.
I spent some time looking at Techsoup. I also talked with someone about volunteers for the library. I did lots of small things like reminding people to send flyers to the Friends of the Library and the Mount Vernon Public Library Foundation.
I also got sent this widget which is kind of interesting. http://www.statestats.org/free-online-courses-widget-ny.php
