I reluctantly began this program thinking it would be very difficult. It has turned out to be a very beneficial addition to my library training. I did feel like I was playing with paper dolls while creating an avatar, but that was alot of fun. I especially enjoyed setting up the blog and exploring Flickr. I thought LibraryThing was pretty neat. Learning about wiki's and seeing how other libraries were using them was also interesting. YouTube was something I thought was fun and I will go back to that. I would definately enjoy more online training. Mr. Darcy enjoyed the fact that he was the center of attention as usual. It's good to know how much Jane Austen is still appreciated and remember you can always go back to Pemberly. See you ...............

I really liked Project Gutenburg. I found out that Pride and Prejudice was # 17 on the top 100 books of yesterday. I started to read it, but then I thought they might want me back at the circ desk to do some work. Oh well, there's always another day! Mr. Darcy was quite excited about being such a celebrity. Who would ever have thought it!

Well I played around with and signed up for Thinkfree. It's a completely free online alternative to Microsoft Office. It lets you create, colloborate on and store documents and files. It looks like it I will be using it quite a bit. I think it will be very helpful.

Word Processing has come a long way from my first class in high school. The tools available now are so helpful that it seems every high school student should have a near perfect paper. It is much quicker than Mr. Darcy's pen and ink jar. No blots either.
