If you need a good laugh, try reading Unshelved, "the world's only daily comic strip set in a public library! Writer Gene Ambaum (the made-up name of a real-life librarian) and co-writer and artist Bill Barnes have been publishing since February 16, 2002. Some of the stories are made up, some of them are based on real life, and some are absolutely true stories sent to us from our readers. And the stranger the story, the more likely it is to be true."
I get the comic strip sent to my email every day-- and it never fails to make me smile.
Welcome to the redesigned Infosearcher. The look is different but my purpose is the same - to provide practical strategies, tips and ideas to integrate and use technology to support learning and teaching. As I teach workshops around the country I'm always learning about new resources that I want to share immediately so this blog will give me the opportunity to share easily and quickly. (If you're not sure what a "blog" is, read "Are You Blogging Yet?") an IS feature article.
I'll be posting weekly, if not more. In addition to my reflections and commentary, I'll also make some of the top requested articles from the Information Searcher newsletter available as links on the sidebar. Other links to past columns, my workshops and other resources are also listed. Join in the conversation -- just click on comments below.
Stop back often. I look forward to reading your opinions and ideas.
