Cool things other libraries are doing

  • Keyword Tweet Clouds
  • Free2 – The Free2 campaign is a chance for us to invite more dialogue about how libraries can continue to grow, improve and help meet our communities’ most pressing challenges.
  • Library of Congress – myLOC
    • “Through myLOC.gov, the new personalized Web site of the Library of Congress, patrons can continue their exploration of the world’s largest collection of knowledge, culture and creativity. Visitors can bookmark areas of interest online and continue their exploration of the Library’s collections by connecting with digital content from their in-person visit. The site also features interactive versions of the same exhibition content physically at the Library, educational resources, information for visitors and a page where users can create their own virtual collection of Library objects.”
