iHCPL: the Next Generation

The "23 Things" have multiplied. Harris County Public Library staff will study a bunch more technological "things" through November 30, 2008. The new name for our learning journey is iHCPL: the Next Generation. Our method of reporting will continue to include blogging about what we have learned.
There will be 8 thematic modules which we can pick and chose from. The first module explores the theme of sound. In the past, I tried out two MP3 players but was not impressed with their ease of use. I recently purchased an Apple iPod touch. Hopefully I can catch up with the Next Generation real soon! Our first assignment included comparing different "pay to play" sites, etc. I'd like to get up to date on downloading eBooks, audio books and films, since we offer all of these @ HCPL. Stay tuned.

Quotation:
A novel is like a bow, and the violin that produces the sound is the reader’s soul.
