Here’s a very clever use of the Macintosh’s RSS screen saver and the library’s new book list: a new books RSS screen saver. If you have a Mac, follow this link: screen saver (there are instructions on the blog for customizing it). Windows users are out of luck, I’m afraid.
What a great idea — computers in the library could advertise the new materials. With a bit of effort, computers in the children’s area could show new children’s books, new mysteries in that section, and new biographies on the PC near that section. And, of course, patrons could use it at home, too.
