In my opinion, books are the best accessory.

Styling Librarian: Technology Update Top Sharing Resources

How many of you have way too many resources and ideas to keep up with? How do you organize and share resources with others? Sometimes picking a simple resource and developing your skills is enough to conquer the management and tracking of too many loads of information!

I have a few “tried and true” resources along with trying out numerous new programs every week. I am starting to sort out favorite new tools over the summer and exploring which ones can fit other needs…

Also, I am presenting at a fall workshop and am sorting out what rises to the top with online tools I use…

 Here are my opinion of the top 14 tools for sharing ideas:

  1. For students – really appreciate organizing resources under different tabs and how quickly students find their resources!: Only2Clicks –
    I shared how I use Only2Clicks for students:

    Hi, can i ask you something? You seem to know a lot about children books and illustrations. The thing is, I’m looking for children books with “scary” animal illustrations like the big bad wolf (or a fox) eating pigs (or seven kids or Red Riding hood or birds in Chicken Little) or being pictured with a fat stomach. Could be any other animal as well. I need it for my research. Any sort of help is appreciated. Thanks in advance.
