Got a hankering for watching every game on the bracket? Then you better be a subscriber of Time Warner Digital Cable or have a HDTV system and an antennae able to pull in WBNS in Columbus. Check out the 2005 NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament Multicasting Coverage & Schedule from Time Warner Cable.

LOEX 2005

Mint Julep. Kentucky Burgoo. Churchhill Downs. I’ll miss out on all of the fun of the 131st Kentucky Derby in Louisville. However, I will be there the following weekend for LOEX 2005. I’m looking forward to this conference. It will be my first time attending LOEX. I have heard good things and have read some information produced by past participants. I am looking forward to the trip because I will have a chance to meet up with some OhioLINK colleagues and also a former instructor from SLIS at the Univeristy of Pittsburgh.

Learning Objects

One of the projects I had hoped to focus on this semester was creating some learning objects that could be used for “on-demand ” library instruction. I have put together a web page on learning objects that has some background on the concept and how some OhioLINK schools are working on similar projects.
