MaintainIT at Internet Librarian

I'm just back from Monterey, and the Internet Librarian conference, where we kicked off our "Share Your PAC Story" campaign. Steering Committee members Adam Wright, Helene Blowers and I met for lunch and had an energetic discussion about the project.

I was delighted that the conference had a track devoted to Public Libraries' Futures.

Helene gave a terrific presentation during the session on the Public Library 2.0: Emerging Technologies & Changing Roles describing the Learning 2.0 program for staff development at the Charlotte & Mecklenburg County library. Structured like a "summer reading program for our staff," the program encourages all staff members to play with social computing tools through a series of self-paced activities. Staff who complete all the lessons get an MP3 player. For more info on this terrific program, see Learning 2.0
