RSS & Widgets: How to put your law school on iGoogle, My Yahoo, Facebook, and MySpace

Filed under: Education and Technology — Ken @ 3:15 pm

Live blogging from CALI 2008: Len Davidson from the DuFour Law Library at Catholic University of America has created several widgets for students to access library resources.  DuFour has not made it’s widgets publicly available yet so it’s impossible to provide usage statistics but stats from UPenn’s library say .4% of UPenn students use their widgets (from widget box) to access their library resources.  The take away here is widgets are easy to build but it’s difficult to get target audience to use them. Business Week has published a couple of articles on widgets and their effectiveness. There are many resources out there that talk about widgets or widget tools. Magtoo is a cool widget that stitches pictures together into a one panorama picture. Len has a nice review on his blog.



  1. Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your
    articles? I mean, what you say is important and all. But think about if
    you added some great visuals or videos to give your
    posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but
    with images and clips, this site could undeniably be one of the greatest in its field.
    Good blog!

  5. Many agencies are simply at the mercy of the whims of their clients when it comes to what can you do to get
    your boyfriend back, love, friendship, responsibility, motivation and accountability.
    Outwardly dashing and courtly, he turned out to
    be in your loving, intimate relationship. To keep your power, you are wrong.
