Library Resources

I especially like the list of resources put together by Linda Bertland, retired school librarian, Philadelphia, PA.on Web 2.0 for libraries and librarians. Bertland also links to a recent May, 2009 article on Twitter for Libraries by Sarah Milstein.
Sarah Milstein is a co-author of “Twitter and the Micromessaging Revolution and her Twitter Tips are found at Tweetreport. I have just hooked up to "follow" her Tweetreport. Will report interesting things as I do finding tweeting to be so much faster than blogging.

Print Friendly Button

Learned about this one on Twitter today. Will save it as a favorite on my Twitter feed. I will embed the Print Friendly into our blog so that you can experiment with it. Simply drag the button to your browser bookmark bar. When you find a web page you want to print without all the extra ads on the side, simply use the Print Friendly button to get a clean copy and also save paper.

The YouTube demo explains it really well.

Behold - quality search engine for Flickr images

Behold is a visual search engine for high-quality Flickr images. According to the website:
"It aims to answer your queries based on what is inside the images -- at the pixel level. It offers a completely new way to search for images, using techniques of computer vision. It is different to standard image search engines, such as Flickr or Google, because those search through images using only image tags and filenames."

"Behold looks for high quality images, so you don't have to sift through hundreds of poorly taken pictures to find a good one. Behold uses both aesthetic and technical quality indicators to find some of the best images available online." Best of all you can specify for non-commercial use, modification or for commercial.
