About The 23 Things Programme

It is becoming increasingly important for library staff to be able to use a variety of new technologies and applications. As an information based service, our skills need to include the ability to use the most up to date applications available on the internet. 

If we want to provide a library service that reflects the twenty first century to our customers, we  need to know much more than how to search for things on the internet or point them in the direction of a useful reference book.

The 23 Things is a complete programme allowing library staff to learn, use and apply the  wide range of  Web2.0 tools and applications in an appropriate and fun way.

Each week we will focus on a different technology, application or tool, and you, as a participant, will use tools such as blogs, emails, social networking and instant messaging to participate in the programme.

This blog has been set-up as part of the Devon Libraries Learning 2.0 program to encourage all of us to experiment and learn about the new and emerging technologies that are reshaping the context of information on the Internet today.

The Devon Libraries Learning 2.0 program contains direct links and offers suggestions for ways to incorporate these tools into your work at the library and your personal lives. We  will offer ideas to “jump start” your thinking and hope you will share your ideas as you learn how to use web 2.0 tools. The design of this online program was completely built on Web 2.0 technologies that are freely available on the Internet. These will include WordPress,Flickr,del.icio.us, YouTube, Facebook and Twitter
