Talkin’ About Presence: Hennepin Co PL Extranet

Check it out:

Hennepin Extranet

Glenn peterson pointed me to this site to check out his full PPT from IOLUG. What strikes me is this is an excellent example of presence and transparency!

The page reads in part: “Welcome to Hennepin County Library’s extranet. Here we offer a sampling of resources from our staff intranet and public web site to the broader library community. We welcome your comments and suggestions.”

How wonderful is it to share stuff on the system level with other libraries and librarians! Not only does this promote staff achievement but it promotes the library as an active member in the online LIS community! It also shows Hennpin’s users what the library does with staff time and resources!

To the folks at HCPL – I say “Well Done!”
