I learned a lot of valuable things by completing Learning 2.0. When it comes to pure unadulterated fun, the image generators can't be beat. In fact, here's another!
The best thing about this process is that I'm very inspired by all the things I found and how they can help us make our public library system an integral part of the community. Programming podcasts? IM homework help? YouTube library tutorials? Book club blogs? The possibilities are endless and that's exciting and invigorating. There were also several tools that would be beneficial to us as professionals. Wikis to facilitate peer communication, tags and RSS feeds to help us organize all the massive amounts of information we collect, and web-based applications so that we can create and access saved text and spreadsheets on any Internet-ready computer anywhere. It's been a wonderfully rewarding experience for me.
That's not to say that I wasn't frequently frustrated. What really worried me and other library staff (I get around, you know) is that a lot of staff members just don't have the resources to complete these tasks even if they wanted to. The staff at teeny-tiny branches share 1 or 2 computers between the entire lot of them and they're pretty much in consistent use for circulation. Speaking of circulation, the workers in that department rarely have much time to spare. Perhaps if PLCMC does something similar to Learning 2.0 in the future they'll give employees a lengthier deadline and fewer tasks so that the necessary time expended won't seem so daunting.
I would most certainly do something like this again. Like I said at 'Brary Blog's beginning, I aspire to be a life-long learner and I refuse to allow my chosen occupation to become mundane. I'm up for any future challenges.
