Joining in … what? 23 things | Professional development of Librarians | Scoop.it

Oxford University provide some online activities called, “23 things for Research“. These activities can definitely be used by researchers but are also really useful to students, lecturers and support staff too. If you just want to read what goes on this site that’s fine but you will get a lot more from it if you register and join in. Have some fun with setting up a blog and writing your first post,considering your “personal brand”, using Twitter, RSS feeds and Storify – and that’s just to start with! One of the blogs created by a student is Amy’s Inkwell – I like it, it’s a good start to blog writing.
