Hacking Your Library’s Catalog: SMS and RSS

ProfHacker – “It’s probably been a long time since any of us have used an actual library card catalog, standing in front of the long wooden drawer, searching for a book by author, title, or subject heading. You don’t need to hear it from me that there’s been a revolution in the way we search our libraries for material. I’m not so convinced, however, that what we do after we find our results has changed much. Do you still jot down call numbers on sticky notes before heading over to your institution’s library? Do you still rely on library slips to keep track of due dates? Do you still print a hardcopy list of your dozens and dozens of check-outs?”

    Sticky notes, no. I still use P-slips
    Library slips for due dates: yes
    Hardcopy lists: not so much anymore. I copy my lists to my flashdrive and then access the flashdrive with my notebook. One day, I’ll just use google docs…
