As you may know, Phil Bradley retired at the beginning of this year, but fortunately it’s still possible to make use of his expertise. He has produced two courses in video format aimed at information professionals, Apps for Librarians and Advanced Internet Searching. Each course consists of 40 or more videos covering different aspects of the appropriate subject. The apps course covers subject areas such as browsers, guiding tools, making videos, multimedia tools, news apps, photography apps, presentation apps and so on. In fact, everything that you need in order to get the absolute most out of your smart phone or tablet, and versions of apps for both IOS and Android are included. The good news is that Phil has made this resource entirely free of charge for personal use. Simply visit his wiki at http://appsforlibrarians.pbworks.com/ and dig in!
The second video course on Advanced Internet Searching covers exactly that. There are a lot of videos on how to get the best out of Google, alternatives to Google, image search engines, multimedia searching, videos on specific search engines such as DuckDuckGo and Yandex. Phil also covers social media searching, multi search engines and much more. This collection is available for personal use for a one off fee of £20, and you will have complete access to the collection indefinitely. Phil is happy for you to use the videos in your own teaching sessions, and simply asks that you do not use them in any commercial form. If you want to know more, or wish to purchase the collection, email Phil at firstname.lastname@example.org for payment details.
