Friday Time Sink....

Librarian Jane Smith just showed me something fun and fascinating she learned at the ACRL conference. The first part of the fun is Montage-a-Google... where you enter a keyword and get a montage of images as a result. As you tweak your search, adding additional terms, etc. you will see different, more specific images. (demonstrating search techniques, of course, and very useful for instruction.) The second bit of fun is the Guess the Google game, where you are shown a montage and have to guess the keyword that generated them.
Addictive... but let's pretend I am practicing information literacy strategies... that's right, I'm preparing for a class!

OK...I've now lost 20 minutes to the Google Game. One more thing I didn't need to know :)
