Workshop 2 – The Blogger’s Toolkit
10:00 – 13:00
Michael Stephens, Special Projects Librarian, St. Joseph County
Public Library (USA)

Learn what libraries and librarians can do with weblogs and explore the potential for using this exciting new communications tool for reaching patrons and clients and collaborating inside your organisation. Workshop attendees will examine library blog taxonomy, learn how to implement blogs in organisations and how to decide which software to choose for a blog. The fast-paced workshop will cover practical training tips and the ethics of blogging, as well as RSS, podcasts and photoblogging. If you are just getting started, or already have a blog and want to know more, this is your chance to get
practical, in-depth information from an experienced librarian blogger.
