Google wiki news

So, at the Library 2.0 wiki – I’ve finally updated the section on Google, adding short tutorials on how to use Google Docs (in beta) to share info, and even how to use the Google Spreadsheets to make a tool to use to facilitate a Library 2.0 program.  Also included is iGoogle, the personalized homepage that you can make, and how to get widgets for it, with a special advanced section on how to make a widget for Google that will give people a way of searching their library catalog from their own iGoogle page.  If they have one.

Comparatively, there’s a site called Conduit where you can make your library catalog (or any other site) into a toolbar, with a search box, local weather, and other features.  Interesting to explore.  I’ve made a catalog search tool with it that others can download, if you want to see one in action:  http://VancouverLibraryCatalog.MyLibraryToolbar.com

Check it out.
