Yahoo I've finished!!

Well I really didn't think I would complete this and found by just doing a bit at a time and having a bit of time to think the exercises over, I managed it. I am really pleased as I would have never learnt so much 'web stuff' as I am not that interested in computers. I found it quite hard going as I did the exercises at home and didn't have anyone at hand to discuss things with. I feel I may have learnt a bit more if I had discussed things a bit. It was a valuable journey and with my children growing up will have a bit more of an idea of what is available on the web. I feel a little more up with the times in the area of technology!!

Social networking

I think it is a good way to reach young people with Library information, what's going on etc that may not use the library already. Great idea for study support groups/ reading groups. I am showing my age as can't really get too excited about it.

My Space and Facebook

Good to learn about these as had heard of them but didn't really know much about them. I wouldn't use them but can see why people do. They would be great for support groups, event organising etc and for people with a keen interest who want to correspond with other like minded people. Not for me though as prefer the old fashioned way of talking to people face to face but never say never!!
