Being culled – books AND teacher-librarians?

My netvibes widget (see lower left of this page) was the most clicked link from this blog yesterday. There is text from an article I wrote about using netvibes in school librairies here https://readingpower.wordpress.com/publications/ Only the public part of my netvibes site is visible to others. The private part can be viewed in netvibes wasabi which gives more viewing options and a more magazine like appearance. Apart from other uses, netvibes is great for collecting new posts to your favourite blogs fto read later.
