Infographics are so useful!

Deborah Rinio's curator insight, December 12, 2013 1:14 PM

In the Fairbanks North Star Borough School District, library staff are often the front-line response for technical troubleshooting. Librarians also introduce teachers to new educational technology tools and strategies, help instruct students in those tools, and offer training to help both teachers and student improve their technology skills and know-how. 

Anita Vance's curator insight, January 28, 2014 6:19 PM

That just makes sense - as information is shared through new media, librarians have learned to share it - we have the best job in the world !!!

How To Become a Conversationalist on Twitter | MH-MA Library | Scoop.it

Twitter is growing on a daily basis and people are trying to figure out strategies that work in terms of marketing and exposure. It is easy to reach people on Twitter, because people can reach customers directly. If that isn’t enough, you can easily campaign to get more followers. Forbes recently discussed how the most successful for of marketing on Twitter is starting conversations with people. Branding has become less about telling people what to do, such as buying products and clicking on links, and more about creating genuine relationships through honest conversations.

Quit Using These 10 Words to Describe Yourself on LinkedIn

Why? Everyone else is using them too. Check out LinkedIn's 2013 Most Overused Buzzwords list....

 

Read the word "extensive" and you don't immediately think, "Great, a comprehensive suite of services covering a broad range of applications!" Instead you skim right over the word because you've seen it thousands of times in the same context. In a business setting, "extensive" is filler.Here are more examples: the 10 most overused words and phrases from LinkedIn profiles in 2013 (along with my thoughts on each). Take a look and then think about removing over-used words and phrases from your website, press releases, and other company communications
