Thing # 22
Nings are a great idea especially for new librarians. This is a great way to find people to collaborate with even if you are new to an area or a first time librarian. As a transplant to Texas, this social networking tool is beneficial. I can invite my former colleagues to join, along with locating new colleagues to share ideas and best practices. When I have questions, I can hop online and find someone who knows the answer or can give me a human connection. The teacher librarian ning gives access to other librarians and teachers to share ideas, ask questions, and keep updated on conferences and cool tools.
