Australian Exchange Librarians Come for a Visit!

Our 2 Aussie Exchange Librarians, Lynette and Jane, stopped by the library this morning. We just found out about them coming last night! One stopped by to see me teaching "Internet Basics." I belive it was Jane. She asked if she could have handouts from two workshops that I do--"Internet Basics" and "Finding and Using Online Pictures." She really liked the "Finding and Using Online Pictures" idea of introducing patrons to not only Google Images and Microsoft Clip Art but also to introducing patrons to library subscription databases that have pictures as well. We both would like to offer an online photo sharing workshop using Flickr and are both trying to get Google's Picasa software installed on our PCs to help patrons who have cameras that need software to access their photo folders. Also we both think that doing an online scrapbooking workshop would be another great idea. After their tour they enjoyed coffee and Krispy Kreme donuts. From their reaction we noted that they liked them far better than the Dunkin Donuts they had before. :) Sigh! Now I'd like to go to Australia and see their library, Yarra Plenty Regional Library.
