  • Twitter.com - microblogging - find out what your network of friends are doing.
  • MLA Citation source - Cite several types of sources such as books, website, etc.
  • iGoogle - a dashboard to your online digital life!

Thanks for letting me crash the party today! You know I LOVE that dualing tools bit! I always get a lot out of that and everything else in the Info Lit workshop. I will be anxious to see how that is used by teachers and how students are responding to the search strategies.
