The Thirteenth Thing

Write a post reflecting on your experiences with web2.0 tools and the 13 things exercises.

This concludes the formal exercises for the self-instruction portion of library2.0 summer workshops. What have I gotten out of this? First, I tried some additional tools other than flickr and delicious, so I have first hand experience with some things that I wouldn't have played around with otherwise. Also, I had a chance to reflect on how these tools are useful for me professionally rather than just for my personal amusement. No exciting discoveries or revelations there, but I think that now I'm better equipped overall to understand how librarians and libraries in general can use them.

But the real benefit for me was learning something together with my colleagues. I interacted with and got to know librarians and staff at UM whose paths don't cross mine in the normal course of business. Yes, it's called social networking for a reason.
