TASLA Session #3 biblios and Speedgeeking

Remember: this was live blogging...there will be typos!!

David Schuster from Plano is talking about biblios.net and how it could be used to create a state-wide database for all our records that could then be searched and downloaded!  He is demoing how records can be created and edited...of course we could import what we already have!

It sounds like something that could be possible. The discussion even went to thinking this program might be an alternative to things like Marc Magician.....now, no one in my district get too excited.  We are NOT changing anything at this point!!!!  This is a discussion of possibilities only.

There was also some discussion about ownership of the records and even parts of the records vs ownership of the database where records reside. This part hurt my head. Marc records are just records, for goodness sakes. Oops, my opinion is creeping in!

Back to biblios.org -- it lives outside the firewall! That is a good thing.

The rest of the afternoon was spent in SpeedGeeking...a smorgasbord of 10 Library 2.0 tools...Animoto, Glogster, Flickr CC, flip camera, netbooks, ipod touch, kindle & sony reader, ning, voice thread,shelfari.

I did an Animoto  of the learning that was going on.

Ok, now on to more networking... the f2f kind...over dinner!
