This week's lesson focuses on the amazing databases available with that little piece of free plastic called your library card. Wow. I didn't realize how many neat tools were available. I watched the promo videos that other libraries have made, sort of mini commercials, and they were great! I definitely think we should try and do the same. They were funny and informative. I also found Thomas Frey's vision of the library as the "Search Command Center" with computers in a U-shape and the librarian as the Command Center Captain, (for lack of a better word,) very compelling.
