Last But Not Least - eBooks and Downloadable Media

eBooks, eAudio books and downloadable media - I had no idea we had so many accessible from the ACL website. I found a number of interesting resources that I'd like to take a look at and I listed them as favourites, to be explored at another time, for example The Outliers.

And, in closing, I have enjoyed this training programme, become more familiar with and adept at using a variety of web tools and interested in using some of them on a regular basis. I've especially enjoyed thinking about and talking with other ACL employees about the future of the library and libraries in general, and how to be an agent of change, not merely in a position of reacting to change. I also feel much more versed and capable of talking to patrons about web resources and what is currently available, and what might be available in the near future. Thank you for the opportunity to be involved in this training programme.


  1. Well done! And glad you've found the programme stimulating and interesting! Would you like to add a link to a podcast to complete task 21?

  2. Yes, I had already added a link to a podcast of the U erkeley Story Hour podcast, specifically: Michael Ondaatje in Conversation with Robert Hass. How's that?
