What's ALAconnect FOR?
I found myself a little hesitant with ALAconnect because I didn't know what it was for. And then I kicked myself.
When I do workshops about emerging technology, I always caution the participants, when confronted with a new tool, not to ask "What is it for?" because, so often, we don't really know what it's for yet. It's not to replace a listserv or webpage, it's something new, and we'll probably be surprised at what it turns out to be "for." We usually start out knowing some things the tool can *do*, and then it's really up to the people who join in and use it to start defining what it's "for."
So, for those of you who have been using ALAconnect, what's it for so far? Have you found unexpected benefits? Is there something I should be doing to maximize my use of it?
