Library 2.0 Feed Search
October 28, 2006

Library20FeedSearch

Wow, Google has done it again. Their new Google Co-op Custom Search tool is absolutely great! It will be so helpful for all kinds of virtual reference work, I’m sure. I just created a custumized search engine on the subject Library 2.0:  Library 2.0 Feed Search.  Why don’t you try it out and contribute!

Ms Dewey – Your Virtual Librarian
October 25, 2006

MsDeewey
My former boss Christer Klingberg at Örebro stadsbibliotek back in Sweden just sent me this really cool link: MsDewey. It’s a… eh… well, a sort of virtual VERY costumer oriented librarian. Very funny! 🙂 But is it more than a good laugh? Is it useful as a search machine? The page is put together by San Francisco-based design shop Evolution Bureau, and seems to be part of a Microsoft ad campaign. The Flash design is nice but the search funcionality seems to be just average. A pity, because the basic idea is excellent I think!
