LIS768 Group Projects: Day Two


Teen Tribe Blog:

This group, inspired by Born Digital and Tribes, created a teen review blog.  They highlight various ways to involve teens and encourage them. Ideas: display teen reviews in physical space to generate interest, market via social tools and usual channels, and use FREE tools!

More than Books:

This group created a community for midwest librarians with Ning. They used the Ning Network help pages and community pointers to build the site. They also outlined what worked, what didn’t and what they learned. They want to encourage use of the Ning beyond class and will continue to work on it. 


This group presented a history of citizen journalism and offered a prototype for creating a clearinghouse of CJ via a library. The group covered the history of CJ, hyper-local reporting, and encouraging participation.
