I know this great wiki resource has been cited before. But in case you missed it, be sure to take a look (& bookmark) this awesome site that pulls together over 100 free web tools for librarians, school media specialist or basically just about anyone with a little curiosity to explore and learn.


“The purpose of this website is to provide a place for K-12 school library media specialists to learn a little more about web tools that can be used to improve and enhance school library media programs and services, to see examples of how they can be used, and to share success stories and creative ideas about how to use and integrate them. Hundreds of free and inexpensive web tools are available for school library media specialists to use that can make us more productive, valued, and, perhaps, more competitive.”

Personally, I really like the “Five to Test Drive” recommendations that you can find in each section... and the list of examples for both classroom and library use are really exceptional.

Thanks for the nice words, Helen.

What the WebTools4U2Use wiki is missing (in my opinion) is REAL examples from REAL school library media centers (and libraries). I hope people will add links to good examples or even point out things that didn't work for them. Sharing is the name of the game and will make us all better at what we do!
