Thing #8

Very early on in this project I had set up Google Reader for the blogs associated with our Library2play project. I have gone back in and played with the organization features and grouped my feeds into folders. It is much easier to pull up one page and read the new postings to the blogs than going to each one individually. It saves time and effort in both the personal and professional aspects of my life and is necessary at this point in the school year. With all the research that is involved with running a library: collection development, trends in libraries and education, reading research and book reviewing (just to name a few), economy of time is essential. RSS feeds are one tool to consolidate and facilitate general information and research. Now that I have had time to play with them, I will be using them even more.
