Five Weeks to a Social Library
There have been many posts around the blogosphere regarding this online course, which will take place February 12 – March 17, 2007. Right now the coordinators are looking for contributors. I wanted to point out what a wonderful opportunity this appears to be in regards to a basic course on new web technologies. The goal of the course is to reach as broad an audience as possible so while you will learn about social software in general deciding if and how to utilize any or all of the technology in your situation will be up to you.
Starting in September look for posts about my thoughts about how medical librarians can use social software, including applications I don’t think are applicable to us.
