See discussion by Stephen Abrams and commenters on the relevance of the 23 Things campaign five years later. We can distill from this exchange the necessity for librarians of lifelong learning, learning by doing, and keeping up with what’s current on the Web.
23 Things was a campaign started by Helene Blowers that was intended to inspire librarians to get up to speed with Web 2.0 tools. In that spirit, this space is intended as a learning ground, and also gives me an opportunity to highlight and comment on the very best of the Library-World. I welcome discussion, as well as short pieces from contributors on books, libraries, and the world of information. Just email me to pitch your idea. My first contributor is Linda Frankel, with some new book reviews.
