The AALL’s Computing Services Special Interest Section (CS-SIS — which does come off sounding a whole lot like our wholly different CSIS, no?) is offering a free online 5-week course for law librarians to introduce them to the new web technologies. The course will take a couple of hours a week, and the weekly outline looks like this:
- Week 1: Blogs & RSS
- Week 2: Wikis
- Week 3: Social Networking and Second Life
- Week 4: Flickr & Social Bookmarking
- Week 5: Next Steps: Web 2.0 @ Your Library
You can get more info — and sign up — at http://cssis.org/cssis-web-20-challenge/. Pass the word — even to some lawyers.
