Curating. Collecting. Pinning. Cutting and pasting. Bookmarking. Gathering links.
We all have our own methods for keeping track of the resources we find online and want to save for later.
Sharing and updating these personal curation strategies is especially important given the ever-shifting nature of the Web, and the need to keep up with sites as they grow and change.
The Library is currently in an exciting period of transition, developing new technologies and using new strategies to better deliver our content to the public. A number of our longtime resources are moving to new homes within loc.gov. Items that lived in American Memory have either moved or will move soon. Meanwhile, starting November 19, the assets in myLOC.gov will be moving to loc.gov, while myLOC.gov’s myCollection will no longer be offered.
The Library’s teacher resources will continue to be updated to reflect these new URLs. However, if you use items from American Memory and myLOC , double-check your own collections of URLs to make sure they’re up to date. If you’ve been using myCollection, move your assets into another system. The Share/Save tool at the top of most Library pages offers many options!
This would be a good opportunity to share your favorite tools for organizing your online assets, so that teachers looking for new solutions might benefit from your experience! Do you have an effective or beloved method for keeping track of your most valued online teaching resources?
