Now you can access podcasts and resources from the Library of Congress at iTunes! Here is what Matt Raymond of the Library of Congress blog has to say about this exciting new Web 2.0 addition for LOC:
Blog. Twitter. YouTube. iTunes. Yeah, we speak Web 2.0.
You nation’s Library has millions of stories to tell, so we’re trying to tell them as many places and to as many people as possible–whether on our own website or elsewhere. And now you can add another biggie to the list: iTunes U.
For those who don’t know, iTunes U is an area of the iTunes Store offering free education audio and video content from many of the world’s top universities and other institutions. (The iTunes application is needed to access iTunes U, and is a free download from www.apple.com/itunes.)
The Library’s iTunes U page launched today with a great deal of content, with much more to come. (Link here, opens in iTunes.) A nice bonus, for those in the know, is that the content is downloadable and even includes materials such as PDFs.
As always, it’s also available in the Library’s own corner of the web.
So as long as people keep finding new ways to get information, we’re going to keep finding ways to get it to you!
I was thrilled to read this news today: fueled by the success of the Flickr project, Library of Congress is adding content to iTunes and YouTube! Read more about these exciting developments at Network World!
We are pleased to announce that our poetry reading podcasts are now available for your listening pleasure at iTunes! Just surf over to this link, and you can download or subscribe to our podcasts for FREE!
Please check back to our iTunes account throughout April–we hope to be adding more group readings as well as poetry readings from individual Grizzly poets!
We are proud to announce the debut of our Video Tutorial page @ The Unquiet Library! http://webtech.cherokee.k12.ga.us/creekview-hs/MediaCenter/video_tutorials.htm These tutorials are viewable in Windows Media Player, but we will also be converting them to an iTunes friendly format so students and faculty can download them into their iPod players as well. Our first set of tutorials will focus on how to cite particular information sources in NoodleTools. If you have not been able to attend training or have not used this resource yet (or have, but are still learning), these tutorials will be extremely helpful for you and your students! Stay tuned and check this page often! We will be updating as often as we can. Don’t forget out new podcast page, too!
