the future of libraries in the digital age
Or Library and Information Professional, whatever your preferred title is.
My Name's Fran and I've worked in libraries for a little over 3 years now.
I started in a large, busy public library, where i spent 3 chaotic, but mainly happy years, and then once i graduated, decided to do a 1 year Grad Trainee Placement.
I'm based at Ruskin College in Oxford for 1 year, which i hope will give me valuable academic library experience, and am at the moment working on my masters application.
I have been investigating a few different web 2.0 concepts for use at Ruskin, inclding seting up a library facebook, and have been looking at netvibes and slideshare. I hope that this experimentation will set foundations for the use of new social media and online applications throughout my career.
