I am the lead for our library’s web improvement team. We meet once a month and at every meeting, we set aside about 10 minutes for a team member to share something they have learned about technology related to libraries. Sometimes people share an article they read or information from a webinar or workshop they attended. By calling it “show and tell,” I try to emphasize that it isn’t a formal presentation, but an informal chance to share.
Here are some of the sources I encourage team members to use in looking for content to share:
- UX Cookbook – U of Arizona Libraries
- NN/g Nielson Norman Group Articles & Videos – subscribe to a weekly newsletter
- WEAVE: Journal of Library User Experience – subscribe to be notified when new issues are published
- Alternative Resources from a recent WEAVE Dialog box article
- WebJunction: Technology
Do you have other sources to recommend? What types of informal information sharing do you use at your library?
