Thing #1: Blogging

I’m taking part in the 23 Things for Professional Development course to learn about new technology and how it can be used to benefit the public library.  Currently, I’m a Library Assistant II for Lincoln City Libraries.  I have worked in public libraries for almost 6 years now, and I recently graduated with my MSLS from Clarion University.  I would like to use my experience, education, and skills to become a youth services librarian.  I hope to use the information I learn in this course to strengthen my skills to become a better employee and candidate for a professional position.

I am most looking forward to Week 12- Presenting Information.  I have not had much experience presenting in a formal setting and would like to learn about resources and techniques to improve my presentation skills.  I am anticipating learning something every week, from my own experiences and reading about the experiences of others.  Blogging about these experiences will motivate me to keep my blog current.
