iPad Class for SeniorNet

My third iPad class for SeniorNet will start next Wednesday. Eight people are signed up. Hopefully the wireless connection will be more cooperative than it was for the last two sessions I taught.

iPad 4 vs. Google Nexus 10

New Virtual Reference Tool!

We just added TextALibrarian to our toolbox! Within the first week we had a great response! Promotional items to come soon: doorhangers, table tents, and more! Give it a try at: 66746 askmadigan

Handheld Librarian Webinar

Enjoying the presentations at the #HHLib Webinar. Earned a couple of badges: Handheld Librarian VII Participant

Maybe we could institute a badge reward system in our library tutorial?

Exciting New Project

Penn College is starting a new major: automotive restoration. The faculty have requested that the library put together a list of resources to support the course. Another casual part-timer and I are creating a LibGuide that includes how to find used auto parts, assembly manuals, collectors, museums, etc.
The library currently has a restored Ford Mustang on display. Who ever thought I'd work in a library with a classic car in it?

Scribblar: Another Free Interactive Whiteboard

In my previous post, I mentioned trying Dabbleboard to get students to participate in contributing keywords for a research assignment. The site did not keep the words on the board as they were written. I tried using the "save" feature, but nothing seemed to make the words stay on the board.
I found a new intereactive whiteboard called Scribblar and plan to try it with the students next semester.
