1. Learning Library 2.0

Welcome to MRRL's Learning Library 2.0 program and blog. Chances are if you have found your way here you are :

  • a member of MRRL's staff who's participating in the Learning 2.0 Challenge.
  • interested in learning more about web 2.0 and the tools that you have been hearing so much about lately such as Myspace, Flickr, blogs, LibraryThing, wikis and many more
  • interested in learning about and playing around with some new web 2.0 tools

No matter what your reason, we are glad you're here!! Learning Library 2.0 is online learning program that encourages staff to learn more about emerging technologies on the web that are changing the way people, society and libraries access information and communicate with each other.

Over the course of the next 11 weeks, this website will highlight “29 Things”, using reading and exercises to help staff become familiar with blogging, RSS news feeds, tagging, wikis, podcasting, online applications, video and image hosting sites and more.

To familiarize yourself with this project, be sure to read the About page. The FAQs should answer most of your questions about this program. If not, then please add your question to the FAQ page as a comment.
