I explored the Google Docs and Spreadsheets and am excited because I think I will use it to create a spreadsheet of storytime books that I can access from home whenever I want. Also if I find myself working at home on booklists, I can create them and have them floating on the web for me to get to when I get to work. I guess you can do this with email too, but this way might be easier.
Another thought I had was that our department could use this tool to create our desk schedule. This way we could all see it at our desk and even suggest changes if needed. We were trying to use the Outlook calendar for this but we couldn't print the schedule screen. If we used Google Spreadsheets, we could create, view and print. Easy!
