The Copyright Clearance Center (CCC) created a short video explaining how copyright works.
CCC is making the video available for free for anyone who wants to use it for educational purposes. The video is available for viewing online and anyone who is using it for educational purposes (e.g. to teach the library staff in your institution) can request a downloadable file by filling out this online form. The video is quite clever and probably the most digestable explanation of copyright I’ve seen/heard. Take a look!

A few weeks ago I volunteered to teach a series of brief courses on technology and Web 2.0. I asked the library staff to select their top 3 areas of interest from a list of topics that I provided. The top picks are:
- Google Custom Search Engines (a tie)
- Meebo / Reference Chat
Runners up were:
- Librarians and Facebook
- Search Tools beyond Google
I will be conferring with staff on both campuses regarding a dates and times that work best for holding these training sessions. I would also like to thank those of you that volunteered to co-teach some sessions. I will be be in touch…

I am submitting an application for a slot in a new training program sponsored by Metro. The organization is offering, through an LSTA grant, the opportunity for participants to obtain the hardware and training necessary for creating their own podcasts. The software, Audacity, is free. Metro will host these podcasts on their server. As a former radio DJ I am very excited about the opportunity to produce my own “shows” once again. The topics of the podcasts will be very much library focused, and I will try to get as many FDU librarians involved as possible.
The classes start late summer/early fall, and the production of the podcasts, and vodcasts, begins in Jan. 2008.
Some podcast resources include:
Library Luminary Lectures
Talking with Talis

A couple of annoucements went out on Friday regarding some email/calendaring training that I will be giving to facutly/staff over the summer. I urge all library staff that are interested in switching to Outlook as their email client to signup for this class. I think it’s great that the unversity offers free technical training for staff.
