Library Blog: Embedded Training & Video

http://library.sbcc.edu/2008/09/academic_search_premier.html I caught note of this via Twitter. Thanks Kenley! Take a look at this post at the Luria Library’s blog. They’ve turned on video comments as well as sharing an embedded slide show that details basic searching of Ebscohost.  This so ties into my takeaways from spending a day at IDEA2008. So much of what we do in the library world and design world comes down to interaction, extension of human feeling, offering something useful and ease of use. This is a perfect example of those things coming together perfectly.

Libraries on my Cereal!

Kables writes: For my librarian friends: Safeway is promoting public libraries on the back of its cereal boxes (well, at least this one cereal box). Emphasized are reference services, hangin’ out, ILL, internet, and multigrain oatey clustery goodness.
