Reading Round Up: Blog Post Edition
On 01, Feb 2013 | In Reading Round Up | By Elizabeth Wroten
I guess this week I was really drawn to some blog posts I read. Here’s a list of a few that I found particularly relevant and interesting:
From the Censored Genius on what Apple can teach libraries. Think customer service. It’s very tongue in cheek, but under it all there’s a good point that libraries are ultimately in customer service and should act like it.
Funny video about QR Codes. Because they suck and need to go away.
Excellent advice about creating good displays. Enough with the tschotskes. Found this one through Twitter.
I agree with Andy Woodworth about why blog. I also think that one of things he says, about wanting to say bold things even if others don’t agree, fits in with my desire to call people out on their shenanigans this year. I’m tired of putting up with not calling spades spades and I appreciate that Andy does that on his blog.
Just as a little added piece here at the end I found this through Sue Polanka (I think) about EasyBib adding a new learning module of sorts. It could be interesting/useful. I would like to come back to it and look at it more in depth, but I thought it was worth mentioning. Research Ready.
