From Zero to Web 2.0: Part 2
Woodard, Amber
Computers in Libraries, v29 n9 p41-43 Oct 2009
During the summer semester, the Vise Library at Cumberland University (CU) began working on its "digital makeover." It has six goals: (1) Create a more user-friendly and dynamic website; (2) Activate and maintain accounts on social networking sites such as Facebook, MySpace, and Twitter; (3) Produce a library blog that allows students, staff, and faculty to learn about library news and events without having to wait on the biannual library newsletter; (4) Implement text reference services and improve its chat reference services; (5) Establish a library YouTube account and make fun and informative videos about library services and databases and create a virtual tour of the building for its distance education students; and (6) Podcast Claire Walker's class sessions and the library's iRead sessions. The author, who is the library technical assistant, provides an update on how they stand with their original six goals. (Contains 4 figures.) [For Part 1, see EJ858681.]
