One of our SJCPL Librarians is touring Europe! To share her travels with her staff at the branch she manages, she started a blog! I asked if I could link to it here as well because it illustrates some wonderful points:
This is a great way to share experiences with the folks back home. I’d like to see this blog on our staff intranet. Now we’re talking about creating buy in and buzz for blogging – wowza!
It also illustrates conversation and community building for the staff of her branch. Look: http://theanniversarytrip.blogspot.com/2005/09/here-is-staff-at-river-park-branch.html What a send off!
Finally, it’s an education piece. It teaches folks that tech training might not have reached yet that tools such as blogs can be used to share information and fun stuff too.
