Nerdy Things

Tomorrow I’ll be attending “Nerd School”, a PD session run by the college’s IT department. Can’t wait to improve my nerdy skills.

On Friday I’m teaching one of our Library Technician classes about blogs and on Monday I’m repeating the PD session for staff “Making the most of wikis and blogs”. There’s little need to supply handouts as all the links I refer to are already on this blog.

I’m thrilled to have been enrolled in Virtual World Librarianship – Your Second Life run in virtual time by Illinois Alliance Library System and GSLIS. Because it will be coordinated from the other side of the world I’ll have to be online in Second Life from 8.30 pm on Friday nights for 6 weeks. Bang goes any social life I might have had. Friday is the only evening that my husband and I usually have a chance to go anywhere without my mother who is 95 and lives with us. However, I’ve been interested in experimenting with SL for some time (there have been previous references to it on this blog) but the college firewall has prevented my doing anything at work. Hopefully my new whiz-bang computer at home will give me a better experience.

    Wow. That will be some great course. You must have applied quickly, as I’ve been reading that others had trouble getting a place.

    GSLIS’s land is right opposite Murdoch University Library’s plot of land on Cybrary City. It looks like your instruction will take place on a giant (2 storey high) book trolley 🙂 Feel free to grab a starter pack from us…and climb the Steps to Research for your free Murdoch T-shirt.
