Week 6, Thing #13

After attending a Library 2.0 session at the fall CSLA conference, I headed home to set up a del.icio.us account. Immediately I could see the value of tapping into shared resources. And I love having my bookmarks wherever I go! This week gave me a chance to play with some of the organizational tools associated with this site. For example, I learned to bundle my tags to give my "visitors" an idea of what my interest categories are. I also added a network badge to the right-hand menu on this blog (scroll down and you will see it).

The podcast about del.icio.us was very informative, and something I will introduce to my teachers next year. I can see departments setting up accounts to share online resources they have found. It would also be fun to assign gathering websites to a group of students using del.icio.us, as one of their research tasks.

Hi KangaLMT2. I love your blog. I have searched for someone ahead of me because I am stuck on #13. When I tried to view the video I got this message.. ERROR: www.library2.0.ottergroup.com is temporarily unavailable or does not exist. Please check the address and try again.

Do you have any advice for me? Do you know how to contact the 2.0 team who are guiding us through these steps?

I guess you could contact me via my blog. Thanks a lot.
