I've been wanting to write a post for some time now about an incredible application to use for your classroom library circulation and organization: Delicious Library 2.

Del.icio.us Library 2 to organize classroom library - Tracee Orman

There's so much to share about this application, I am sure I will never do it justice. I wasn't asked to write this post or promote the product and I acquired the app like everyone can: I downloaded the free trial. But once I started using it, I was hooked; I purchased the $35 app shortly after (like...10 minutes after) downloading the free trial. I've been using it for a year and a half and still love it. There's just one catch: it's only compatible with Macs. This is what I love most about it: you would think Apple designed the app themselves. If it can't read the barcode, you can just type in the title and it will search for the ISBN for you.

Checking a book out to students is a treat, too. You can also sync the app to work with iCal. For a $35 one-time fee, Delicious Library 2 is a bargain.

Scoop.it to share faculty resources - Sarah Ludwig. We recently conducted two surveys at the library, one to students and one to faculty.

Scoop.it to share faculty resources - Sarah Ludwig

There were many interesting pieces of data to come out of the results, and I am trying to focus on one of them right now: faculty want more outreach from the library. I’ve got some big plans to address this, but in the short term, I decided to work on providing a monthly newsletter for our middle and upper school faculty, highlighting news, resources, and classroom ideas. I used scoop.it to curate a collection of links (twelve total). It was incredibly easy. I used the bookmarklet to grab links that I’d favorited on Twitter or saved via Diigo, and then it only took a few minutes to arrange those links on the scoop.it page. Like this: Like Loading...
