As Linda pointed out so eloquently in the comment on my last post, the problem is also the fit in the library service. I readily admit to having a fair dose of “Technolust”, wanting to have something in the library, because I am excited by it, not because it would have a benefit for my library service. I tend to look for ways to utilise particular new tech in our service, instead of looking for ways to improve our service, whether it is tech or not.
I still believe ultimately that a lot of the exciting newer tech, such as podcasting, RSS feeds, blogs do have their place in our library service, but not yet! So in the meantime, I work on educating myself and my fellow staff, so when the day does come, we already have a leg up. Thanks genevieve for the encouragement!
