Two quick links to clever libraries, gleaned via the fantastic State Library of Queensland unconference yesterday.

QUT Creative Industries subject guide now includes a del.icio.us tag cloud. Not only that, they have incorporated a link to this in Blackboard, the Uni’s Learning Management System. Took two weeks from conception to implementation and a great example of fine service created without overthinking it to death via committee beforehand.

Yarra Plenty Regional Library have incorporated into their catalogue subject headings from popular “catalogue and share your own book collection” site, LibraryThing.

Check them out. If you want to see what we talked about at the unconference , visit the unconference wiki and click on the Topic numbers on the left hand side menu. I think they are being updated over the next week.

  1. QUT has recently introduced LibGuides into the subject guides system for the QUT Library.

    As such, you link is now out of date :P. Visit the new subject guideshere, and note the Delicious tag clouds are now embedded through the use of modules into the LibGuide pages.
