My first morning with glass was not with out incident. I still had the charger cord connected to glass and took it out the power supply as I rushed out the door. Unfortunately I did not realize that I dropped the earpiece on my front steps which caused my glass experience today to be limited. However, when I arrived at the library I was met with many stares and some people begged me to try them on, but I did not yield. I did feel bad though as I want everyone to experience glass. I wish that I could purchase a few for the library as I have seen other Libraries across the country do. I helped one student find some background information on the harlem renaissance by utilizing glass. Glass searched the internet for: 'harlem renaissance,' and then displayed an array of results. I clicked on the first one, wikipedia, and then glass kindly read the article to me, while I stood there looking at the glass screen. The student was looking at me as if i were a MS Windows application that she was waiting to load. I guess I was accessing brain memory.... So far glass has been awesome!!!

This blog will cover a librarian's quest with Google Glass. The possibilities for Glass in the library has really piqued my interests and I am very excited about sharing my experience with those interested in Libraries or anyone who wants to know. I plan to create a video of me opening glass for the first time in my next post. Be on the look out!!!! I will also host a Hangout on Air Event and broadcast it to YouTube and possibly some other sites. I plan to use Glass in the Library as a Reference tool as part of the concept of Peripatetic Librarianship, which is similar to iRoving; but expands on the concept to include a pedagogy that allows students to interact with Librarians on their own terms and in whatever manner they choose. Basically, the Librarian will always be available and easily accessible.
