Web 2.0: What Library Managers Need to Know
Wednesday, May 9, 2007
Web 2.0, Library 2.0, Learning 2.0… whatever 2.0? Are you still in the dark about this 2.0 stuff? Well here's your chance to find out more.
In the last year the 2.0 movement has affected almost every industry and organization, but the changes that the "live web" has created are more than just a bunch of memes. User-generated content, collaboration, and online social networks have taken over the internet's highways and bandwidth that was once only dominated by searches on Google has turned into much, much more. So where do libraries fit into this new user-centric world? Join Helene Blowers, Public Services Technology Director for the Public Library of Charlotte and Mecklenburg County for a library administrator's overview of web 2.0 tools and learn about a free ready-to-launch Learning 2.0 program that you can use to encourage your staff to explore.
Webinars are free of charge and registration is only done on the day of the event on the WebEx server. No passwords are required.
