Webel Yell!

By Brian Egan on February 10, 2009 3:31 PM | Permalink

Welcome to our blog, Webbin’ Rebels. A goofy name, but one that we hopes embodies the spirit of relaxed conversation we’d like to have on this blog. There are a number of ways we can improve our library services on the web, from improved search to introducing mobile applications (a topic about which I plan on blogging shortly). In addition, there are several little projects we work on which rarely get discussed. Examples include a form for proposing digital collections to implementing a podcast for Dave Schwartz at the Center for Gaming Research. Furthermore, we’d like this blog to be a resource outside of our institution as well by promoting open source projects we’ve developed, or giving tips on working with various products, such as the WebOPAC software. We hope to discuss these topics in a light-hearted, creative, and humorous manner with a focus on how we can improve services for our patrons while making librarian life a little easier.

And if you thought “Webel Yell,” and “Webbin’ Rebels” were the only tacky jokes we’ve got, well then you’d better subscribe to the RSS feed. Alex is brewing more of them in his lab.
