I created a 3-2-1 report using PowerPoint with audio commentary for each slide. Unfortunately though, the file was too big to attach in this blog. However, I was able to attach the PDF of the presentation (without the audio).
My director’s brief is a proposal to add podcasting programming to South San Francisco Public Library (where I currently work at).
In the Learning Everywhere module it was discussed how these days learning takes place in many different places and at any given time. Technology has allowed learning to be mobile and flexible. As someone who uses public transportation just about every day, I can’t help but think about all the things I do on my […]
In the New Models module it was discussed how the physical spaces of libraries and modern approaches to library service can serve the needs of communities.

The book I chose for my review was The Future of Music: Manifesto for the Digital Music Revolution by David Kusek and Gerd Leonhard. I was hesitant to choose this title because it was written in 2005 and so much has changed since then. But on the other hand, it was the only book from […]
One of the two public libraries I work at resembles a Hyperlinked Library in many ways. For example, managers welcome input and new ideas form both staff and patrons. Overall, human connections and conversations are present. The library is active, especially in our makerspace area which includes 3-D printers, an engraver and other machines and […]
