Week 9 of 27 things led me into the world of YouTube, podcasts and SPL's downloadable audio and video collection. Except for the copy and paste part of embedding it into my blog (which turned out easy once I asked a fellow employee how to do it) the discovery exercises were clearly doable and fun. I listened to LibVibe, a library news podcast about the homeless camping out at
the Vancouver Central Library which was interesting to me because I had traveled to that city a couple of years ago and at that time the employees there were on strike. Perhaps if I continue to listen to LibVibe, I would be able to hear how all that turned out. As for our downloadable collection, I have tried it several times and find it great. I just wish that there were more copies available
on certain titles and to have the ability to return them sooner would add to the enjoyment of the collection.
