To make it any easier they would have to come to your house and tell you...

As I prepared for recording the TPS EIU guest spot "Sharing Historical Media via New Social Media" on the TechTalk4Teachers podcast I was STUNNED by the social media outreach offered by the Library of Congress.  If you are out of the loop - you have no one to blame but yourself!  The Library offers Blogs, Podcasts and RSS/EMail Feeds.  But those of us who love the new technology delivering bite-sized morsels, the Library can can be found on Facebook, Twitter and Flickr!  There is even a Mobile App.It can all be found by following the Connect with the Library link at the bottom of each page or visiting http://www.loc.gov/homepage/connect.html.

Now no one should ever again see me and say "Dang, I just taught (insert topic here) and I forgot to look at the Library of Congress for materials."  GO GET IT, PEOPLE!!!
