When I first started blogging, the content was dominated by posts about library hacks and info skills related musings, and for the next ten weeks or so that theme is going to be uppermost in my mind as I work as an Arcadia Fellow with the Cambridge University Library.
The arcadia@cambridge project is “a three-year programme funded by a generous grant from the Arcadia Fund to Cambridge University Library … to explore the role of academic libraries in a digital age” and I’m sincerely grateful for the opportunity to be able to contribute to this activity.
So I’ve spent the last two days in Cambridge, based in Wolfson College, and have already benefited from the Twitter Effect in getting coffee meetups sorted:-) (I’ll work on the Cambridge Twitter network diagrams when I get a chance ;-)
I’ll also be posting to the official Arcadia Project Blog.
If you subscribe to the full fat feedburner feed from this blog, I’ll pop links to my posts on those other blogs in my delicious feedthru bookmarks, and maybe also put together an occasional roundup post. So for example, today I posted:
- By Way of Introduction…, my first impressions post;
- Engaging With the Issues Raised By The Google Book Settlement, a quick roundup of issues relevant to UK academic libraries arising from the Google Book Settlement, along with a link to JISC’s WriteToReply hosted consultation on the issues;
- Visual Links – Sharing Links With QR Codes , a quick think about adding QR codes to the OPAC book results pages.
For project related posts here on OUseful.info, I’ll be adding them to the Arcadia category, so an Arcadia feed will be available from here too. I’m also using the arcadia tag on delicious, the #arcadia hashtag on twitter, and I’ve set up an Arcadia set on my flickr account for project related screenshots. Anything that makes it to Youtube will also get an appropriate tag…
