At the end of this week the temporary central library will close, and we will have five weeks to move all the stock up the road to the new 'state-of-the-art' library, for a grand opening in mid-March.
Some of the staff continue training during all this - especially relevant if your work practice is going to change.
On Friday the 13th a few of us will go to the next town, to take a one day Web 2.0 course with Phil Bradley, which I look forward to. Here's the first of a two-part article he wrote about Web 2.0 - for CILIP (Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals) - which not only clarifies the concept, but offers suggestions of the kind of new services we could offer - and new ways for staff to communicate among themselves and with the public.
Phil's reference list for Web 2.0 software, possibilities, options, etc I want to from his website.
Also the I want to blog for up-to-date information.
