Intro to Online Office Tools

  • Work similar to Microsoft or Open Office Tools

  • Hosted online (accessible from any computer)

  • Privacy and Sharing options

  • Allow for collaboration without emailing the document back and forth

Nicole C. Engard – South Jersey Regional Library Cooperative – March 11, 2008


Why??

  • Why use these tools?

    • Because it keeps information in one place.

    • Communication is scattered during projects

    • More people are telecommuting

    • It’s a way to work with colleagues in other offices

    • They’re easy to use (and mostly free)

  • Most importantly

    • Your patrons are using them!

Nicole C. Engard – South Jersey Regional Library Cooperative – March 11, 2008


Communication Without Shared Tools

And now,everyone knows little bits and pieces

and no one knows everything.

Nicole C. Engard – South Jersey Regional Library Cooperative – March 11, 2008


Keeping Everyone in the Loop

  • Shared tools allow you and your colleagues to work more productively and efficiently, never excluding someone who needs to be in the loop.

My Suggestions forOffice 2.0 Options

  • TypePad (http://typepad.com)

    • Not free, but a viable blogging option if you’re interesting in something hosted, but not as limited as WordPress and Blogger

  • Twiki (http://twiki.org/)

    • A bit easier than MediaWiki to use if you want to host your own wiki

  • Zoho (http://zoho.com/)

    • Offers the same functions as Google Docs, with a bunch of added tools that may be of interest to you and your staff

Other Possible Tools

  • Flickr (http://flickr.com)

    • Share your library’s photos online – can be made private so only library staff sees – or public for the world

  • Facebook (http://facebook.com)

    • Libraries can now have their own profile on Facebook – allowing you to reach your users on a new level – but also giving library staff members a sense of community and fun

  • LinkedIn (http://linkedin.com)

    • Professional networking tool that allows you to find connections and recommend colleagues for their work.
