I noticed the updated in the Monday Memo (http://blog.lib.umn.edu/mondaymemo/2010/05/may-24th-2010.html):

And it got me thinking--how do you explain this in instruction? Do you need to? Is it really just a repository or is it a catalog? Any thoughts?

When in doubt

What do you think of this as a marketing campaign? I can't decide if I like it or not...(found at http://librarygarden.net/)


I saw this posted in Stephen's Lighthouse (http://stephenslighthouse.com/2010/05/27/the-e-learning-experience/). He also includes a few good points:

  • Consider this video a warning and a learning opportunity.
  • We must be creative and innovative and focus on the learner.
  • We're not entirely there yet, but the future of learning is being discovered, now, by librarians and educators and students who experiment and share."
What do you think?
Did you see this? I am interested in how much "B-roll" footage (Thanks, Marlo) there is. I wonder if this could be used in Library instruction this fall--would the Google project be an interesting lead in to talk about Google vs. Libraries or just to get student's interest? Should we embed this in a PPT and make it available to folks?

UThink.jpg"UThink: Blogging and Beyond," a presentation highlighting multiple features of UThink Blogs, a service for the University community, is scheduled for 2-4 p.m. Wednesday, June 2, in 402 Walter Library.

UThink, a service offered by the University Libraries with support from the Office of Information Technology (OIT), is intended to aid in teaching and learning, scholarly communication, and individual expression, and provide support for personal, curricular, and scholarly communications conducted by the University community. The service is available to any current faculty, student, or staff member of the Twin Cities campus.

The event will focus on the various uses for UThink, including blogging and less well-known, unique uses the service can provide in an academic setting. Presentations by UThink site creators from the College of Education and Human Development, School of Public Health and the Humphrey Institute are planned. Attendees also will have an opportunity to ask questions of the panel. Refreshments will be served.

Those interested in attending the event should R.S.V.P. via www.oit.umn.edu/news-events/register. The event also will be available via UMConnect at www.umconnect.umn.edu/uthink.

Sounds like what I heard during ARLD Day with a keynote and presentations about bringing student bodies in the Libraries through exhibits of student work. I am eager to attend and would be interested in getting more background on this.
