So today I was playing around with the “Groups” functionality in the beta version of the new WebJunction site that we are launching in just a few short weeks. I’m a big proponent of learning by working with things you think are fun, so I made a Group intended for Library Staff that play World of Warcraft** If you play WoW and are a library staffer, please join the group fun here when we launch!
And you know, once we launch the new site you’ll be able to make your own Groups and invite people to join them. As you can see in the larger version of the picture, each group will then have member (well, only one at first:), an overview tab (what you see in the image here), a documents tab (for you to upload docs and media to), and a discussions tab (where you can have message board types of themed conversations strings. WoW Library Staff would join the Group I made today, but I wonder… what kind of Group would YOU make for Libraryland?
** WoW is the largest video game on the internet that lets you play with other people. Wow is a MMORPG or a “Massive(ly) Multi-player Online Role Playing Game”. Yes, I know I am a nerd!
