Welcome to our blog, Webbinâ€™ Rebels. A goofy name, but one that we hopes embodies the spirit of relaxed conversation weâ€™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, weâ€™d like this blog to be a resource outside of our institution as well by promoting open source projects weâ€™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 â€œWebel Yell,â€ and â€œWebbinâ€™ Rebelsâ€ were the only tacky jokes weâ€™ve got, well then youâ€™d better subscribe to the RSS feed. Alex is brewing more of them in his lab.
