Hi all, I just got back from CIL2007 - what a great conference! So that's how I discovered ning & the Library2.0 group (after crashing a dinner that some of you had at CIL - thanks for letting me join in - I learned a lot & enjoyed meeting you all!)
I'm the "Web Resources Librarian" for the CT State Library (do mostly webmastering and some training/presentations). I'm new to the State Library. Before that I'd done systems librarian work for a county library in CA and for a library automation network in CT. I'm excited to get to focus on web technologies here (the Web2.0 movement has been a pet interest of mine since I learned about it in 2005). I had already been blogging for personal purposes up to that point, then tried to find a way to expand it into the work sphere.
While I'm not a programmer, I'm pretty good at adapting, customizing, and troubleshooting web-based tools (of course, I do html and CSS and work with the usual suspects, from Photoshop to Dreamweaver & FrontPage (don't ask)). The IS folks here have been great to let me install various open-source tools (Wordpress, MediaWiki, etc.). We run an IIS server. I have some perl-based tools, as well as the php & mysql and we run a few .asp pages to interface with Access dbs. I'm excited to be here and hope to share experience and ideas with you all.
