Happy birthday dear Internet…

Posted on: May 3, 2013

Rear of computerThe Internet became 20 years old on 30 April! Yes, afraid to say our Learning Resource Manager can say she has been using the Internet for the past 20 years. How many of you our there can remember dialling up on CompuServe which was the first online commercial Internet provider in the United States?

And the question is where would we be without it? For an LRC one of the prime uses of the Internet is the fact we can put our Online Public Access Catalogue out on it. Then there’s the fact that as librarians our response to the Internet is to of course catalogue websites and online documents that are on it…And as part of our student inductions  it forms the gateway to our ebook collection…the host for material that students reference in their assignments and the place where we can upload videos to make their understanding of the LRC and its services sharper. For example our LRC basics video on YouTube.

Many Happy Returns Internet….long may you continue.
