Things 8 & 9 cdp23

Google calendar was easy to use. I as able to set up a Shared Time Off Calendar for our department. It will be easy to keep the whole group up to date on who will be out of the office and when. It will eliminate the need for multiple emails and constant revision of the desk pad calendars we now use. I could see using Google Calendar as a scheduling tool for a small library. I also took a look at the Yahoo Calendar, it's very similar. I choose to stay with the Google product since I have a Google account.

Evernote is interesting! I watched several of the videos, read some of the blog posts ( Digitwirl entry was a great example of practical uses for Evernote) , and investigated the add-ons in the Trunk. If I had the responsibility for for managing personnel or organizing events I would use this. I might try using it for personal projects such as crafts or recipes just to get some experience. Another issue I have is technological... Evernote is great for using with multiple devises, but neither my phone or I are smart enough, my tablet is still a Big Chief and my PC is plugged into the wall!
