About This Site


A library is not just a physical space -  a warehouse of books - but a virtual learning space, or learning commons. It is my hope that the Virtual Library Media Center will become a giant conversation, where all of you help to build the space. I have started by listing tools and information sources that I think are valuable and will continue to add to the site. Help out by becoming part of this knowledge community! Contact me if you have a tool or resource that you would like to see added to this site - or leave a comment on the bottom of this page!
