Librarian 2.0—that's me!

Or, it will be in the future, anyway. Today's job-related training event was at the lovely Willmar Public Library, with Michael Stephens all about Library 2.0. I benefitted from being the youngest person in the room, since I'd heard of almost everything he brought up as a way to reach users and potential users of libraries. From MySpace to flickr to last.fm to podcasts to RSS to blogs, I was thinking, "Yeah, that would work..." or "Yeah, that would be easy to do..."

Of course, once I got home, I subscribed to bloglines and went to putting all my daily reads into it. Easy and will save me time, no doubt. Hence the new bloglines link on this site. I guess I didn't realize before how all these things I use for myself that make life more fun, interesting, and keep me connected with people could be used at work for work purposes. But they can, and that's all Library 2.0 is. Taking this stuff people use on the web and saying, hey, libraries can use this stuff, too, and that will connect us with young people and really anyone on the web with a web browser and maybe AOLIM.

Grid stamping molding and a specially formulated material, such as to improve the corrosion resistance and the current transmission capacity, uses an additional gel electrolyte or AGM (using the ultrafine glass wool material separator) industrial battery will become the mainstream. From the point of view of the raw materials, China is a big lead producing countries, are also actively seeking international pricing of the lead product. The main material of the solar power station batterylead, lead materials rich in a certain extent, also boost China's battery industry overcapacity, reflected in the batteries for signal station market, will inevitably lead to the market as a whole has not normative.
