A community for teacher-librarians and other educators

So, hello. :)

A little about our project. Firstly, most of it can be explained on our about page, so if you really need a point of reference check out our blog.

My hope here is find some cool people and bump ideas back and forth.

In general, the idea of the BIBLIOTHEKSPOLIZEI project is to visit historical sites, libraries and museums, then blog about it. Now, going some place and blogging about is okay, but doing in a fake looking police car is another. The idea is to make the trip exciting, borrowing from what I learned about rallies, what make them exciting and adding that to visits. Then the post act as advertising for the place in question. Also, we plan on more library related post when the fall comes because we can't get out as much. School, work and bad weather makes this project far more seasonal than I'd like.

The techie side of the project is using "web 2.0" or "library 2.0" to interact with the people who follow us on our web presence. I acknowledge that some people want to see if we'll get pulled over, but I think that's just a few. I think most people who follow us are just stuck at the computer for that day and want to follow us out of boredom or because we going to something they really care about and can't make it. That said, our mom's follow us so we drive nice and easy.

I think the main aspect of the project is that there is an excitement about road rallies that can convert to road trips, on a far smaller scale but the icons on the car, the photos and the tracking kind of add to project an air of interest that makes advocacy interesting.

Of the top of my head, the problem with most attempts at advocacy is that they are boring. Sadly attention spans are short, even for the best of us. Blame what and you will, but you have to come across and novel. And as a personal narrative so there can be an emotional investment.

Okay, that's all for now.
