First Course: Let's get started...

Welcome to NJSL's Technology Tapas program & blog. Chances are if you've found your way here you're either:

  1. a member of the NJSL staff who's participating in the Technology Tapas Challenge
  2. interested in learning about and playing around (yes, playing is allowed in libraries) with some new web 2.0 tools that will help you expand your information literacy toolbox.

Either way… We're glad you're here!!

Technology Tapas is an online learning program that encourages staff to learn more about emerging technologies on the web that are changing the way people, society and libraries access information and communicate with each other. Over the course of the next sixweeks, this website will highlight Web 2.0 through discovery exercises to help staff become familiar with blogging, RSS news feeds, tagging, wikis, podcasting, online applications, and video and image hosting sites.

To familiarize yourself with this project, be sure to read the FAQ page. The information there should answer most of your questions about this program. If not, then please add your question to the FAQ page as a comment. So fasten your seat belts, grab your mouse and get ready for a discovery adventure… and remember, it's OK to play in the library and have fun!Be sure to tune in Wednesday, March 25 for the next "thing" or discovery item ... or better yet, subscribe to the RSS feed.


  1. wish me luck this is my first time blogging.I think this is going to be fun.

  2. Good luck and have a lot of fun exploring and playing! :)

  3. Well it does sound a little interesting and different. Almost everyone at the library is so serious, and it's really become a place of just strait work. Hopefully this will alleviate the boredom of just working and learning new things.

  4. I love FREE stuff! I'm going for the MP3 player.
