NUS librarian Aaron Tay runs a very informative blog called Musing about librarianship. Besides musing, Aaron shares about technology and how the latest developments on the web can be employed by library users.

Besides blogging, Aaron twitters too. Looking at his updates, you wonder when the man goes to sleep!

I stumbled on the NUS Career Center's YouTube channel yesterday. Their channel is a combination of an audio podcast (those are indicated with the NUS Career centre graphic) and on-the-ground coverage of NUS Career Fair 2009.

This is the second self-started YouTube channel by an NUS department. NUS Libraries was the first department to foray into YouTube.

Besides these departmental channels, NUS also has an official channel on YouTube.

Check them out!

Here's some infotainment for Friday. You've probably heard of the Periodic Table of Elements, of which there are numerous online resources.

Instead of a regular web-based periodic table of elements, a team of chemists at the University of Nottingham have put together a series of short videos about the elements instead. Hat tip to The Chronicle of Higher Education's Wired Campus for highlighting this.

Lead by Professor Martyn Poliakoff, who has the Einstein-like crazy professor hair, the Periodic Videos team highlights interesting properties and stories about every element in the table - from Helium to Ununoctium.

They are very watchable, and I had trouble choosing a video to highlight in this post. I chose the one above because I felt it was the most appropriate, since this is all about the Periodic Table of the Elements. (Oh, there is also an interesting connection to vodka in that video too.)

The Periodic Videos are also available on YouTube.
