I really like WordPress, I do, it’s a fabulous tool, but to be able to customize it as you want and add all the cool widgets you crave for it’s got to be the installed version: WordPress.org, not com. And com is what I have and I simply don’t have the time right now to fully discover the org version. So I’m taking the easy way to paradise, stepping over to Blogger. At least for a while. Bibl goes Blogger, BETAbibl, check it out!

NordBib 2.0 – Get Inspired by Web 2.0 for Libraries

October 1, 2008 - 7 Responses

Check out the NordLib 2.0 conference, a Web 2.0 and Learning 2.0 Conference day organized 21 November by the Stockholm University Library. Their conference blog is a neat example of an efficient and cheap way of opening up a dialogue with conference attendees before the actual event.

I’m excited about this conference initiative which I’m sure will give some creative contributions to our joint efforts to bridge the gap between the academic and the public libraries. Public libraries have for many years been informal meeting points for sharing, IRL. Now we are moving the perspective towards the new social web and are busy implementing “old” concepts (for example the Study Circle, as a collaborative learning concept!) and new methodologies (the CafĂ© table as a methaphor for sharing!) on these new digital and informal meeting points: the social communities on the web.

I think we have a lot of interesting experiences within this field to share between our different library types. In the future we’ll probably be merging into one single library type: the “Lifelong Learning Library” which spans over both the formal and informal learning perspective. What do you think?

See you there in November! Looking forward to hearing Malin, Erik, Guus and other interesting guys who are really in the sharing “business”🙂

(The Conference blog is temporary down at the moment. If it’s still down when you read this you’ll find a lot of useful info on the library main page as well: Stockholm University Library )

LĂ€s den.

Wanna Doodle with me?

September 28, 2008 - 2 Responses

NĂ„t som kan ge en snudd pĂ„ psykbryt Ă€r ju nĂ€r man vill göra en sĂ„n “enkel” sak som att komma överens om en mötestid med sina kollegor, alla med sina högst privata system för att schemalĂ€gga sin tillvaro och sĂ„ gott som ingen med en elektronisk kalender, och det hela totalhavererar för att ingens informationssystem liknar den andres. och Ă€r det nĂ„gon som mot förmodan anvĂ€nder gCal, iCal eller Outlook sĂ„ pratar givetvis inte kalendrarna med varandra. Och resten av kollegorna, uppskattningvis 95%, kör givetvis analogt. Visst, analogt Ă€r charmigt ibland, och t.o.m estetiskt, men förstĂ„s fullstĂ€ndigt vĂ€rdelöst i kollaborativa sammanhang.

Det som började som en enkel frĂ„ga – nĂ€r kan vi ha möte? – utvecklas till slut till en elak hĂ„rboll av tyckande hit och dit, missförstĂ„nd och allmĂ€n frustration. Resultat? Utmattning och ett spirande hat mot allt vad möten heter.

SÄ vill vi ju inte ha det eller hur? Det Àr dÀrför Doodle finns. Det hÀr Àr Doodle:

1. Skapa en en Doodle-enkÀt pÄ webben.
2. Skicka lÀnken till dina analoga och digitala kollegor
3. Alla markerar sina lediga dagar/tider
4. Kolla vilka tider som flest kan
5. Boka in mötet, andas ut och anvÀnd den sparade tiden för en promenad, en glass eller varför inte lite lojt nöjessurfande?

Hey, wanna Doodle with me?🙂

Ibland (ofta?) uttrycker andra ens egna Ă„sikter mycket bĂ€ttre Ă€n en sjĂ€lv….

Reclaim your library. KrĂ€v din rĂ€tt – biblioteket Ă€r ditt. Dra in rollspel och Tv-spelskonsoller. LĂ„t barnen slĂ„ kullerbyttor, fika och rita pĂ„ vĂ€ggarna. VĂ€gra köras bort frĂ„n internetdatorn precis nĂ€r du Ă€r inne i ett skapande flöde. Visa fingret Ă„t övertidsavgifter och reservationsavgifter. Vi arbetar för dig och med dina pengar pĂ„ fickan.
